Re: easiest version of linux for subversion

Collectively thanks to everyone for the feedback. To
add some perspective, this is a consulting shop and
not the "day job" for any of us although we all do
work in different locations. The box we were going to
dedicate came to me for free (cannot beat the price)
and getting a Windows license for it would far exceed
the fair market value of the hardware. And to be
perfectly honest several of us have wanted to set up a
LInux box because it would be cool.

Again the threads have bene helpful. My friend (our
CEO) is also getting help from a friend of his who is
a Linux expert but I wanted a starting point.

Many thanks,
