Unless you have a specific reason for needing to use a Subversion  
server, I always recommend Mercurial.
It's WAY easier for single-user projects.
Git is better suited for seriously massive codebases, but it's a bit  
more complex in day-to-day life.

My reason I've stuck with svn for so long is that I use Dreamhost and  
they offer one-click HTTP shared subversion repo creation.

I'm planning on moving all my projects over to Mercurial eventually,  
but I've been too busy with the actual projects themselves ;)
