Subversion is stable, even on Windows ;) , but you'd better run it on

As a GUI, TortoiseSVN is GREAT when you work on windows. I can't
recommend anything else : http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/

Concerning symlinks, you can't create them on single files, this has
been discussed a lot. You can anyway use the svn:externals property to
achieve almost the same behavior with whole directories. Check the
subversion book : http://svnbook.red-bean.com/
