I was using MSYSGit. Recently installed Github's Windows application. It crashed 1-2 times while "extracting the GIT. Please wait" screen. Then worked. I got some questions

  1. Is there any chance that these 2 git's conflicting with each other? Maybe Github's application crashing because of MSYSGit?

  2. I'm working with MSYSGit in daily life with DropBox. I wonder if both of them do same things? (I mean has same functionality.) If yes, can I delete MSYSGit and leave only Git's one? BTW, It has shell too. (Actually I didn't tested if it can do git procedures or not)

hi, it's better if you ask one question per post –  CharlesB Sep 4 '12 at 22:09
    
@CharlesB, Hi, Thx mate, for your advise. But I think, they are easy questions for git users. I'm new to git. –  user978733 Sep 4 '12 at 22:12
    
@epic_syntax Sorry, but whether or not they are simple questions is irrelevant. Please break up your question or choose one. The purpose of this site is to create a collection of great question/answer pairs for people to revisit. Not just for your one-time use –  sehe Sep 4 '12 at 22:16
    
As per @CharlesB's question, we prefer that you ask one question at a time. Also your third question isn't really suitable here, you'd be as well asking the maintainers. –  Kev Sep 4 '12 at 22:19

Github for Windows is bundled with MsysGit, so you can certainly keep only Github's.

MsysGit isn't considered stable because it has some limitations that are still worked out.

but github's version has only shell. No gui map like MSYSGit provides. –  user978733 Sep 4 '12 at 22:20
    
What is a GUI map? –  PeeHaa Sep 4 '12 at 22:25
    
@PeeHaa I mean hierarchial commit history map screencast.com/t/tIy5XrMPgvg0 –  user978733 Sep 4 '12 at 22:26
    
I think you're referring to gitk. –  adymitruk Sep 4 '12 at 23:23
