Depends on if you like control of your repository.  BitKeeper has
had numerous licensing issues.  It's not Open Source.  Subversion

Mount the Subversion repository via https w/ web_dav.  Voila,

I've got subversion in use extensively at the office, and it has
been able to support everything we needed of it.  Access from
windows boxes?  How's TortiousSVN (windows shell extension)
or web_dav, or just viewing the most recent version in IE?
