On the other hand, if you don't want to exclude the Windows people and
still want to have a central repository anyway, Subversion also
eliminates the need for "repository replication" as CVS does. This
means that the public read-only and public developer repositories are
actually the same, giving new changes instantly to the non-committers

As an additional advantage, there are very good Windows tools
available to check out Subversion repositories (Check out TortoiseSVN
if you didn't already!).
