+1 for Tortoise. The way it snaps-into Windows Explorer makes it
much harder to do "the bad thing". That's really important.

The bad thing is moving / renaming version controlled files outside
the context of CVS (or Svn, etc.). Nobody thinks they'll do it, but
everybody does.

eSvn makes me a little crazy. I'd use something like TortoiseSvn on
my Linux desktop, if it existed.

Whoops, it does exist ... if you can live with Nautilus:

If I could find an Svn plugin for Thunar, I'd be all set. One'll
probably just appear in a few months. Gotta love open source.

And natch there's KSvn (and kdesvn), if you're a KDE 3.5 sort of guy.
