Simple Git Usage

To update your repository type:

git pull

To commit your changes type:

git add .
git commit -m "your comment"
git push origin

But there are some pretty good clients out there. For Windows the Tortoise Explorer shell integration is pretty good. And free! For Mac I've found that SourceTree is my current favorite. It works with Git, Mercurial and Subversion. But it isn't free.

On Windows I like SmartGit, which isn't free.
And I'm using Tortoise when I'm down in my VM.
But I don't understand Tortoise's rebase functionality.

SmartGit looks pretty nice. I'll have to keep it in mind when I'm using Windows.
