I don't like Subversion. Since I've moved on to Git and Mercurial, I've never looked back. But for legacy projects, I still have to use it, and then I'm glad that TortoiseSVN is still around to ease the pain. Off topic: Concerning the "one star rating" complaining about the centralized metadata: This should really be removed. Firstly, it is a change in Subversion 1.7 itself that has nothing to do with the client. And secondly, I don't see why this is a bad thing. In fact, having ".svn" directories cluttering my entire working copy was one of the things I always hated about SVN, even before I heard about DVCS alternatives. I applaud to the SVN developers that they finally got this right.
Newest version Will not install to win XP Pro x64 OS wants newer windows installer. Have you decided to not support XP Pro x64? Why not provide an installer that will work with XP Pro x64? And how can you rate it if you can't use it?
