Hi,

I need to setup SVN on windows 7 64bit. In my past job I worked in a local source control app. Now I will be using SVN but the repository will be remote. I'm a bit new to using subversions. I know about tortoiseSVN but I've read that it can be slow over a network connection. Are there any SVN recommendations as good or better than tortoiseSVN? I don't mind if the client is commercial or not. I want it robust and stable (ability to view history, compare etc). This will be used mostly for web development with ruby on rails.

I've been using TortoiseSVN for probably 10 years and have never found it to be slow over network connections. I run an SVN repository at home and connect to it over the internet from various locations and it's fast enough that I'm never sitting around twiddling my thumbs. And that's running over a residential ISP connection, usually on WiFi at the client site.

Thanks for the input. I'll probably stick to using tortoisesvn
