<h1>Welcome to the home page of Git for Windows</h1>
<div class="row">
<div class="span8">
<p><a href="http://git-scm.com/">Git</a> is a powerful version control system aiming to be the fastest decentralized source code management tool on this planet.</p>
<p>Having its root in the Linux development community, Git used to be quite dependent on POSIX features usually only provided by Unix-style Operating Systems. Thanks to the efforts of <a href="http://www.ohloh.net/p/msysgit/contributors">a few contributors</a>, this project succeeded in providing an almost feature-complete fork of Git on Windows. Being solely driven by volunteers in their spare time, it is nevertheless quite stable.</p>
<p>In order to develop Git for Windows, these volunteers rely on a build environment that is based on the <a href="http://mingw.org">MSys/MinGW</a> project. To sort out the confusion revolving around the naming scheme, let's have a look at this table:</p>
