In addition to John Walton's comment about no IRIX port, I would like to 
add that there's also no Cygwin port at the moment.  Looks like there's 
something being worked on, but currently when I type /setup at my Cygwin 
bash prompt, Subversion isn't on the list of things I can install, but 
CVS is.  I'm sure there's some sort of Windows binary available but if I 
have to go download something from another website somewhere and run a 
klunky installer, then I don't consider it to be "as easy to install as 

Maybe in another year or so Subversion will be widespread enough that it 
will make sense to switch over.  But a big well-established project with 
a large codebase shouldn't rush out to be an early adopter in my opinion.
