Subversion is written in ANSI C and uses APR, the Apache Portable Runtime library, as a portability layer.
The Subversion client will run anywhere APR runs, which is most places.
The Subversion server (i.e., the repository side) is the same, except that it will not host a Berkeley DB repository on Win9x platforms (Win95/Win98/Win ME), because Berkeley DB has shared-memory segment problems on Win9x.
FSFS repositories (introduced in version 1.1) do not have this restriction; however, due to a limitation in Win9x's file-locking support, they also don't work in Win9x.
Without the proper ability to distinguish between the two types of fora, the SPEECH Act penalizes those plaintiffs filing claims in good faith in appropriate fora." The article goes on to discuss the "fundamental failing" of the SPEECH Act, and to state that the Act "should be amended."

The act was passed by the 111th United States Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama.
It creates a new cause of action and claim for damages against the foreign libel plaintiff, if they acted to deprive an American of their right to free speech.
Instead, it is Subversion's repository interface, which is a "versioned filesystem" in the sense that it stores a directory tree whose state is remembered from revision to revision.
Writing programs to access the repository is similar to writing programs that use other filesystem APIs.
