AFAIK, git still does not support windows properly[1], which I would say
is a killer... Unless you can of course to everything you need through
one of those frontend protocols, but if you can do everything that way
then why would you need git in the first place?


[1] per git homepage, only cygwin is supported. Cygwin != windows, and
not acceptable for a windows developer. The only other option being a
pure java plugin to Eclipse, which would require Eclipse, which is of
course also not acceptable. Per: http://git.or.cz/gitwiki/WindowsInstall.
