Sometimes it helps to have more than one OS on your computer. For Open 
Source projects the Windows version is often late in coming and harder 
to install. For example on Slackware Linux all the bits and pieces 
needed for compiling Scribus come with the system, the compiler, the 
linker, the QT4 libraries and so on. It is a fair amount of work to 
assemble and install these on other Linux flavors, and even more work 
on MSWIn and OS X.  So those who live on the bleeding edge, like me, 
find that Linux is a more comfortable way to go.

The wiki will most likely have some useful information on installing 
and updating an svn version on MSWin.  I just prefer the easier path.
