There is also a Subversion client for Eclipse, the Subclipse plugin (
http://subclipse.tigris.org/). I've used both the Oxygen and Subclipse SVN
clients and I like them both. The Eclipse plugin has the advantage that it
integrates with Eclipse's general "Team" facilities, which includes the very
handy "Synchronize with Repository" function, which lets you see what's new
and changed in the repository before doing an update or a commit.

If you're used to doing things from Windows Explorer Tortoise is probably
going to be most natural. If you're already working in Eclipse then the
Eclipse plugin will be natural and if you want a more complete standalone
GUI then I can recommend the Oxygen SVN client. Note that the Oxygen client
is bundled with the normal Oxygen editor distribution and is also available
as a free download.
