Setting up a Subversion server is quite complicated. Setting up a Subversion server that runs through Apache is not trivil either. Setting up a Subversion server that runs through Apache, on a Windows machine that authenticates through a Windows domain is quite a piece of work. And to in addition install Python, Python bindings for Subversion, mod_python and ViewVC, then we are talking about a couple of hours work… The actual moving of data from the old server to the new one was at least easy to do.
I much prefer Debian, there I could have installed everything through Aptitude (even if I would still have had to configure it). But for private use, I prefer Git, here you do not need any complicated server at all.
