He didn't say that. He just compared XP with Windows Server. And under
some circumstances it can be more cost-effective than Linux/*BSD/Open
Solaris, especially if a company's IT department refuses to do backups
for non-M$ operating systems so one has to setup his own solution. For
the Subversion repositories it can be sufficient just to copy some
dump files to a SMB share.

I also prefer to use a UNIX-like server, and I have to admit that I
never set-up a M$ Windows based Subversion server but without knowing
all circumstances I would't call him insane. If the load is low enough
and it can be accepted that the server has to be restarted once in a
week or so even an XP "server" can be okay.
