Git on Windows, it actually works now

I’ve been trying out various distributed source control tools, and used several of them for various very small projects. I’ve most mostly settled on git as the one I prefer, but I haven’t yet published any code with it. Also, I’ve been frustrated that git support for Windows has been very weak.

Msysgit appears to have solved the git-windows problem, at least well enough for small scale work. If you’ve been holding back on trying git because you use Windows, now is the time to jump in.

Update: I’ve posted details on how to get started with msysgit and GitHub as well as a comparison of Git software for Windows.
