Re: easiest version of linux for subversion

Well our ceo refused to believe that my free P-II was
capable of supporting anything :-), so he found a used
P-4 more like 2.5 GHz. With some assistance from a
Linux fan friend of his we are now up and running with
Slackware. Our PC's all have TortoiseSVN installed
and we are happily using our new system.

Thanks again to all who replied. I'll be sure to drop
a note if anything comes up!

Cheers,

Lyman
