Recommendation for Solaris 10 verses Linux & RAID for Subversion Server?

From: Steve Gardell <sgardell_at_iperia.com>

We have experimented a bit with Subversion and are looking to
move it into production. I have spent a bit of time in the archives,
but apologies if this has already been addressed in some not-
immediately obvious fashion.
 
I am looking at either a Sun T2000 server with built-in RAID (0,1) or
some roughly comparable Dell, also with built-in RAID. We
anticipate using the FSFS mechanism.
 
Is there any compelling reason to pursue one alternative over
the other? Which Linux?
 
Also, I saw one poster strongly recommend RAID 5.
RAID seems like a no-brainer, but is there really a compelling
argument for RAID5 this verses RAID 1 or RAID 0,1?
 
Thanks in advance.
