  • Git still has problems being Windows friendly

    Not necessarily a problem for everyone :-) You can't totally blame the original designer if he exploits characteristics of a certain OS to gain speed. After all, being cross-platform is not the top design goal for git.

    • Raising a barrier to contribution is always a problem. It means less people in the world you don't know about yet are able to effectively contribute.

      I've yet to contribute to any git project, because the time investment to learn all the concepts and find a toolchain that doesn't suck just isn't worth it for the sort of small improvements I might want to add.

      And as for cross-platform, it was just fine right up until the point people start promoting it for more than just the kernel.
