I use win32 client and server (get the TortoiseSVN client, it's great).

Use fsfs - it's simpler, faster and more reliable. The only issues are with very
big repositories, when you have 10,000+ revisions (and hence 20,000+ small
files). This could cause problems on NTFS. Maybe by that time someone will have
changed fsfs to merge groups of old revisions into a single, larger file.

Choose fsfs - if you need to change later it's easy. Just dump, create a new bdb
repository, and reload.
