Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient staging areas, and multiple workflows.

Installation note:
1. Extract to your desired directory.
2. Make a link to the extracted git.exe by creating a file called 'git' in /usr/bin:
#! /bin/sh
exec '/c/programs/git/bin/git.exe' "$@"
3. Same goes for gitk:
#! /bin/sh
export PATH=/c/programs/git/bin
exec 'gitk' "$@"
