Are there many Windows 2003, FSFS, Apache SVN servers?

I've been running a subversion server (FSFS, Apache) on a Windows 2003
server. (Certainly, Windows 2003 is not my first choice, but it's the only
available server.) I recently noticed that one of the directories in my
repository has become "hosed". (I won't use the word "wedged". That seems to
be reserved for bdb repositories.) Fortunately it's an empty branches
directory (file:///svn/repos/branches).

Perhaps I'll start another thread next week detailing the error messages I
receive when trying to access this directory. In the end the question will
be whether the subversion database is "hosed" or the native Windows file
system has become corrupt.

But I would like to start with a simpler discussion. Are other facilities
successfully running svn under Windows 2003? Are you using FSFS? Are you
using Apache? I would prefer to stay with my current server for cost
reasons. However, if this is a rare configuration, it may justify the
expense of a new server running a more popular configuration.

I know I'll hear comments about linux vs. Windows. But I'd also like to hear
comments about svnserver vs. Apache and bdb vs. fsfs under Windows.

Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
