Question synchronization across Windows(laptop), Ubuntu (desktop), Windows(desktop)

I'd like to keep a synchronized folder on primarily my laptop (Windows XP), and my main desktop (Kubuntu Hardy heron - I like Hardy) and also (but less important), a desktop at work (with Win XP on it).

The main reason is to keep a synchronized version of a keepass db file (keepass is a great little app for storing passwords) but will be great to have it work for any files.

Keeping track of working copies thru SVN would be a great feature (I recently signed up for a VPS running kubuntu 8.10, to serve as a central svn repository).

If anyone has advice on what application (freeware preferably) that runs on Windows + Linux to achieve this, would be great to hear about it!

So far through google search I've come across but just curious if this would work for more than 2 machines and also if it is suitable for a central svn-server setup?

Many thanks for help,

I wanted to point you to the Unison file synchronization tool since it works both on Windows and Linux/Unix. But looks like you already found it. I can confirm it works like a charm, in my opinion better than rsync. I use it in a production environment, so pretty critical that it works well, and it does. Haven't had a problem over the last 6 months.

Kind regards,
