[PLUG] GIT is client driven- win git gui to linux host

this is a MAJOR dev proj with A/THE? major content provider.
the development product ends up on a linux box, where GIT is running.

i have created a GIT repository on RHEL5 from the command lin

but developers will be using the tool
at the desktop, they may typically have win xp machines.

need a win git client to connect to my repository.
traveling these paths ...

    1) cygwin with git plugin- not gui
    2) install eclipse and git plugin
    3) msygit
    4) git-gui on the server

i am guessing mixing repositories created from command line and from some gui wont "comingle"

Well, to be more specific, for *nix systems. I use it all the time on
OSX and it works great. However, Windows support looks like it still
might be a little iffy.

Also, while it was originally designed by Linus for kernel
development, it has evolved into a popular VCS that's used for a large
number of open source projects (e.g. perl development recently
switched to git) as well as some development shops.
