Possibly because it depends on your needs. We have around 4 GB of
data in ~70 repositories for ~30 users on a AMD Athlon 1100 MHz and
a backup machine with an AMD K7 600 MHz and I have the impression
that (at least) the primary server is rather overpowered for the task.

The pilot setup originally ran on Win2003 Server (and worked there,
too), but was later switched to Linux mainly for maintenance/automation
reasons and I have a general feeling that it runs "smoother" now.
I have no hard numbers, though.

The overall performance bottleneck in a Windows server/client setup seems
to be in any case Windows Explorer on the clients, especially if there
are more than a few dozen or hundreds file in a folder. Most performance
problems are "magically" solved when using svn from the commandline, so
there seems to me nothing svn could solve by itself (except, perhaps,
by changing the layout of the .svn folders, but I am not sure this is
worth the trouble...)

No problem.
