To clarify… the reason you can’t ‘find’ Git is because Git is a program you don’t see. That is to say, it has no graphical front-end with buttons and shit. Git was always meant to be a command-line utility. Now… you can get yourself a graphical front-end to handle git for you… so that it functions like something more akin to Dropbox. I think a few people on these forums do it that way. People I respect do it that way. But… as long as we’re spit-balling, I’ll give my opinion: That way sucks. It is my very humble opinion that you should learn Git the hard/real way.

I’m pretty sure there’s at least 4 people on these boards that would agree.
