    I'm also on Windows and I've used TortoiseGit, SmartGit and
"vanilla" Git. Both Tortoise and SmartGit are _great_ tools and do the
work _very_ well. But I must agree with everyone that already told you
that you _need_ to know the basics in order to use those correctly.

    That being said, if I had to choose between Tortoise and SmartGit
*today*, I would kept with SmartGit, since the last time I tested
Tortoise (Jan 2010) it wasn't working very well. But I'm giving it a
new try and it seems to be working fine so far.
