(I think it's a mistake to stick to GUI: the concepts are easier to

But there are nice GUIs for Git too. The "official" one is git gui,
distributed with Git. I do not like the visual aspect a lot, but it has
a very good coverage of Git's functionalities. Otherwise, have a look at

git-cola is a good one.

Another reason to migrate is that bzr's developpement has stopped :-(.

There are tons of alternatives. See e.g.
