git's private version of cygwin does not play nicely with an existing cygwin
installation. git can be used with windows - if you don't use anything else as
well. Hg still needs a number of updates on it's eclipse plugin to handle
sub-repo's and a similar problem affects git's. Response from those development
teams - stick with cvs or svn if you are using 'modular' projects.

Cygwin? Both git and Mercurial packages seem to exist, although I don't
use them so can't say how good, bad, or otherwise, they might be.
TortoiseHg does a good job layered outside eclipse on both windows and linux,
but this is well outside the 'php' area of discussion ;) Although providing a
stable development platform for php development is probably of interest.
