Well, back in the day I used WinCVS which I greatly preferred to
Tortoise. Probably the biggest reason is because it had a "flat" view.
Which would let me see the changes across all subdirectories, and filter
only changed files.

So rather than seeing:

~  X subdir/
~  X file-1.c
~    file-2.c

I could see:

X directory/subdir/header.h
X directory/file-1.c

Sort of like the view when you actually go to commit.

I'm also more of a "use the keyboard" type of person, rather than
clicking 2/3 layers deep through menus to get something done. Explorer
is decent about keyboard control (Alt+F,W,F to create a new folder).

I will say that I prefer TortoiseSVN to RapidSVN. Especially trying to
work out setting properties (I find svn's lack of truly recursive
ignores to be a huge pain.)
