The Subversion command you clicked upon is a command line client. If
you want to use a true Windows client, check out TortoiseSVN
<http://tortoisesvn.net/> which integrates into the Windows Explorer
file browser. It's an extremely popular way for people who use Windows
to interact with Subversion.

Subversion has an established programming interface, so there are
dozens of Subversion clients that plug into various programming
environments including Eclipse and VisualStudio. It's usually how a
typical developer interacts with Subversion.

Non-developers use the various graphical programs and plugins that are
available. There are Subversion GUI clients for Windows, the Linux/KDE
"Konqueror" file browser and for the Mac OS X Finder. There are Qt
based Subversion clients that give you a unified graphical interface
between the various platforms. It all depends upon your taste and

That's one of the great things about Subversion: You are not stuck
with a single way of interacting with the repository.
