The situation is this, in the Department several developers, all Windows, began to use Git in development. (msysgit for windows). Many still XP, and some 7ka.
As a convenient tool (to menus, Windows, and at least console) for managing Git took TortoiseGit.
All who have Windows 7 — everything works fine. To committse, Maritsa and synchronized. There is no problem.
One XP — shoals solid: one encoding, one Cyrillic doesn't work, who doesn't want to sync or committse. In General, the problem at everyone.
Put everything in one file as msysgit and TortoiseGit.
Version (latest available on the websites):
git version 220.127.116.11.msysgit.0
Questions to the community:
1. What would you recommend in this situation? Go under Linux is not suitable for a number of reasons.
2. What are some other Git build as himself, and GUI client?
3. Hg (Mercurial) or Bazaar — how they behave under Windows XP / 7?
