Which Subversion client should I use? [closed]

I want to use Subversion source control for a PHP website. It is installed on the webspace I rent: hooray!

"I use TortoiseSVN at work, and it works very well. I'm pretty sure it's one of, if not the most popular SVN client for Windows :)

It has Windows Explorer shell integration, so you get a nice TortoiseSVN menu in your right-click context menu.

And it's free!"

For use with Eclipse, you could try Subclipse. I haven't used it myself however, so I don't know its pros and cons!

I use RapidSVN because I need to work in Windows and Linux, and this tool runs in both environments. It does the trick and it's free.

"I usually have installed four SVN clients here:

TortoiseSVN
SlikSVN which is the command-line subversion client, just without the OpenCollabNet registration and advertising crap.
AnkhSVN in Visual Studio
Subclipse in Eclipse

I tend to use either one, depending on in which environment I am currently. What's important to note, though: If you have multiple clients and Subversion changes the working copy format again, you have to upgrade all to a new version. Would be so much easier, if they all shared a single library ..."

If you want a (free) solution that integrates into Visual Studio, you could give AnkhSVN a try. I've used it successfully before now, and the only reason I don't use it is that I prefer tortoise.
