The ".git" sub-directory that stores the whole repository is normally a hidden 
directory (as are most directories with a name starting with a dot). You can 
make windows explorer show them by setting an option.

  If the repository is a working directory (not bare), then the repository is 
stored in the ".git" directory.

  If the repository is bare, then it is stored in the directory itself.  Bare 
repositories typically are used on git servers, rather than on development
