Not as a developer, but as an engineer who's used and and activated
servers for it in a number of businesses: it's open source software,
it's well supported by the user community, there is a large user
community using it on Windows 10 for various professional business
environments. If you need user support for Windows 10, I'd look to the
"TortoiseSVN" packages which integrates quite well with all supported
versions of Windows and is based on the current Subversion release. If
you need Subversion server support, I'd reach out to Wandisco for
large scale support, or any local systems administrators who've worked
with at school or in other roles.

It's easy to setup, the guidebook at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ is
*the* reference guide for new users and administrators,

Since you've not mentioned the details of your rollout, it's difficult
to offer any guidance or suggestons. I would suggest that you think
about security policies, since Subversion clients often store
passwords in plain text, by default. They do try to warn you before
doing so, but some foolish people ignore this and accidentally store
critical passwords in places they can be stolen.

I'd also strongly review the workflow of when do you make a branch,
and when are changes committed to the master. And I'd review backup
procedures and practices for the master:
