Do you have Dropbox? You can imagine that it's a bit like installing the 
Dropbox desktop client. You can still access all your files by logging into 
dropbox.com and downloading them from there, but it's way more practical to 
have all your Dropbox files already synced to your computer. However, Git 
differs from Dropbox in the way that it is much more technically oriented, 
and less automatic: You have to manually tell it when to sync code between 
computers and GitHub.
