say what you want about git, but lets all count our blessings that the most popular version control software isn't some microsoft office style windows-only trash heap that has extremely limited command line functionality

@er1n @SuricrasiaOnline hello, i was a professional perforce admin for half a year. it sucked shit through a straw

@SuricrasiaOnline What's wrong with Visual Source Sa--mmph! *pouts around the bar of soap*

@LilFluff @SuricrasiaOnline i remember the old joke calling VSS “source motel”: code checks in, but it doesn’t check out!

@SuricrasiaOnline In fact Git is complete garbage on Windows.

I mean, so is everything else, but damn is it slow.

@freakazoid @SuricrasiaOnline I got to help my senior design project team mates set up git on their windows machines and I hope I never have to do that again. WHY ARE THERE SO MANY SHELLS

For Windows, I install Git with default options + TortoiseGit. The default actions (pull, commit+push) are easily available, and resolving conflicts is a menu click away.

@freakazoid @SuricrasiaOnline

@SuricrasiaOnline I have to use Microsoft's Team Foundation Version Control on a daily basis
