I don't know if 10 or 12 minutes is normal for a working copy of that
size. I have heard that checkouts on Windows take longer than on
other operating systems. But the important thing to remember is that
you only do a full checkout very rarely, usually just when you first
start working with Subversion. From then on you can just update the
existing working copy, which should be much faster.
