TortoiseGit is a Windows Shell Interface to Git and based on Small TortoiseSVN iconTortoiseSVN. It's open source and can fully be build with freely available software.

Since it's not an integration for a specific IDE like Small Microsoft Visual Studio iconMicrosoft Visual Studio, Eclipse or others, you can use it with whatever development tools you like, and with any type of file. Main interaction with TortoiseGit will be using the context menu of the Windows explorer.

TortoiseGit supports you by regular tasks, such as committing, showing logs, diffing two versions, creating branches and tags, creating patches and so on (see our Screenshots or documentation).

It is developed under the GPL. Which means it is completely free for anyone to use, including in a commercial environment, without any restriction. The source code is also freely available, so you can even develop your own version if you wish to.

Really good for those, who don't want to use Linux for work in GIT. THis software helps to do everything needed (pull, push, merge). And also the logo (turtle) is very nice, too :)
