I vote for for Ubuntu or Debian. My reason, apt-get.
apt-get install subversion
(thats all folks!)
Since I played with debian about 4 years ago, I have not looked back yet.
I like Ubuntu because its based on Debian :) and I feel its more friendly to
maintain for a user who is not used to command line that much.
However, other distributions also have similar tools like yum and may be
something else. I just happen to have really ( I mean really) good
experience with apt-get.
In linux, client of choice is eSVN , and on windows I prefer TortoiseSVN.
