I'm using TortoiseSVN on Windows (both WinXP 32 and Win7 64) and it 
works perfectly for both FPC and Lazarus.
Yes, on the older XP machine it takes a while and sometimes slows the 
computer down significantly - sometimes even as if the computer just 
stopped -, but it works.

I use "http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/trunk" as the url for FPC,
"http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk" for the Lazarus 
checkout/update. Then run a .bat file to run the compilation and update 
of FPC and Lazarus while having a drink.

I would not say that with Linux everything is easier - that is far not 
the case - , because both OS-es work and once you did it right, you will 
find it easy the following times on either platform...
On Linux I use manual commands because I am too lazy to even create a 
script for them :)
