Hi Remon,
from my very limited experience as git user and from second hand
experience through lurking I know that git doesn't come without
problems. Maybe the app you intend to use has a nice gui that makes it
easy to use but so far I've seen quite some LADs running into problems.
Consider trying it before switching to it entirely.
git is a powerful beast, don't overlook the beast part..

So yeah, I used it and it's fine by me but I haven't got my head around
it and am not very comfortable with checking out anything but the
master branch. This might be because one can only check out the whole
thing anyway, if I got that right.. as said, haven't got my head around

If it helps you it's helpful ;)
