Similar. When I used eclipse I didn't even try to use the plugins
and just stayed on the command line. (Well, almost, but back then
jgit couldn't deal with submodules which I needed.)

I have the same experience with the few git GUIs I tried - none
stuck to me. Even 'git gut' hardly made the cut, I stay with
the command line except for gitk which is very useful to see
what you've done.

For people that live in the IDE anyway the mileage will vary,
but for me there is always some extra mismatch to overcode -
I know what the CLI is doing and think in terms of these
operations, and I'd need to understand what the GUI is thinkig
to be good for me (i.e. how operations are implemented there);
for me it always fells like a mist over the repo.

And I know that I'm missing on some features - the integration of history
examination into codebrowsing schoould be a good thing.

Still, if you show them eclipse, I'd also show them the git integration
in there. I dread the moment I have to show someone how to merge a pull
(or any merge) in eclipse though. :-(
