Git was a bit of a daunting trip when I first tried to learn it. I almost forgot how hard it was to learn until I tried to teach it to some first year comp sci students for a group project we were working on.

Github for windows. Saves me thousands of seconds. I taught two almost completely computer-illiterate people how to contribute to my projects.

True, though last I checked it still went to command-line when it so much as sniffed a merge conflict.

Yep. I also deal with that unfortunately.

Well thanks, but I'll need more than that.
