This should simplify git development on Windows.

And some said it would never happen. Github, the popular repository for many open-source code projects, now has a brand-new, first-ever Windows(s msft) client. That means Windows developers building Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and pre-release Windows 8 applications can now share their work on the popular code bank.
The beauty of Github is that it lets groups of developers collaborate on projects without stepping on each other’s work. Team members working on a single project can sync changes to make sure they are, in fact, working on one project, rather than multiple versions of the same project. That becomes very important as the size of the development group grows. Github also facilitates work on private or public projects so that new developers can look at and learn from code posted by their forebears. As one developer put it recently, Github is “the social network of coding.”
