It's much of a muchness. I doubt you'll notice a difference.

Linux has better filesystem support for many, many files, so if anything
is going to perform better, its Linux. But the SVN boys have made some
changes recently to how it stores the repository so windows performance
isn't so bad with millions of files.

You might need to consider other factors, Linux has exceptionally better
licensing fees, is easier to manage and has less resource requirements
than the equivalent Windows server.

Installation on Windows is truly easy - if you use VisualSVN server.
Installation on Linux is still simple, but VisualSVN is truly awesome in
its 'doubleclick the setup and you're done' ease.

Hook scripts are the opposite - Linux is easy, but I installed (ie
copied) the strawberry perl dll and exe to my SVN box and now write all
my hook scripts in perl. I started with Windows batch files, but do
yourself a favour and use perl.

I'd say it comes down to which OS you prefer (or, nowadays, your budget
