yeah, i was exploring area of revision controls recently, and git seemed to be one of best choices. Unfortunatelly, i am still on win, so i will probably have to stick with SVN...

too bad video has 162MB, i can't download it now Sad

According to wikipedia there is an almost complete MinGW port of it and you can use git with cygwin aswell (very slow, though).

The video is interesting but it doesn't talk about how to use it, just Linus' experience, git features and his blaming to the other versioning systems like CVS and Perforce.

Note that the main strengh of git is its distribution capability, something not needed at all if you need a versioning system in one man software development.

i don't like cygwin (but i like mingw, i could try it).

When i was reading about git, i liked it's "lowlevel" nature, few simple actions combined to do what you need. Also i like local repositories because of my sucky connection.

I sugest you try andLinux instead of cygwin since it is true linux running alongside windows. I have been using it for ~1.5 year now and never had any problems.
You can even setup a dual-boot and tell andLinux to use that instead of the one following by default.
andlinux uses ubuntu and you will have all the functionality you would expect from linux. You can do apt-get update/install etc and it works great.
I made a share directory so now I can use fasm to compile on both platforms using the same code (including FASMLIB)

Mind me while I am an unexperienced coder from the area of CVS-type stuff. But why or if at all is it required for the CVS thing to be installed with every devolopment workstation, as opposed to a server-side implementation, where each user can log in and have some virtrual private space?
