Greetings, Abhishek J Kanitkar!

How you manage your sever? Usually, it's "install, run, forget".
You care about it when something goes wrong, and if you did the first step
right, it'll be minimal.

AJK> What problems do you think may come up with either Windows 2003 Server or Linux Server?

Power outages, filesystem corruptions, unattended reboots...
You know, all the usual stuff that happens when you do not need it.

AJK> And which one will give better performance ?

On a sidenote, if you want an advice from my own expirience, it's not a matter
or perfomance (as said, SVN itself is quite efficient), or management (SVN
itself barely need any management other than it is doable from regular svn
command), but rather - authentication and authorization issue, which places
your question a bit out of the way of this list.
I'm using Windows platform and built-in windows authentication to resolve all
visitor's names. Apache mod_auth_sspi playing the primary role in that.
