Re: Re: Performance of SVN on Windows and Linux

For the Subversion server, performance is mainly a network issue. When
we were trying to find a machine for hosting our Subversion
repository, I took a really old Linux server (I think it is about 7
years old). I wouldn't run much on this machine, and I wouldn't even
dream of running ClearCase on it, but its fine for Subversion.

The big thing is which format are you more comfortable with: Windows
Servers or Linux Servers. And, how comfortable are you using Apache on
a Windows server if you are using http:// or openssh if you're using
svn:ssh://. In our shop, almost all of our servers are Linux, so Linux
it was. In other shops, they are Winfanz all the way. Pick the server
OS you're most comfortable with, and you'll be fine.
