VSS and Sharepoint

The company I work for currently uses VSS for src control. We have tossed
around the idea of using SVN for the past year or so, and it looks like we
will be making the commitment in the next couple of weeks. Are there any
good scripts/URLs for migrating from VSS to SVN?

While going through our latest round of questions with the group, a question
came up about replacing Sharepoint with SVN. The reason this question was
asked was because we only use sharepoint for its file mgmt abilities and the
versioning. Most of the docs in sharepoint are word, excel, ppt and pdf
files. The problem with sharepoint is that we have a large number of Mac
users here who cannot access sharepoint. That, and we figure if svn is so go
at managing files, why not see if we can replace sharepoint.

So my question is, are there any GUI's designed with a business user in
mind? Sure, we could use tortise, but i think that's a bit to technical for
the group of people we are trying to help. Seems like a simple enough app to
write over SVN, so i'm guessing there may be some options out there.
