What is Git?
Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient staging areas, and multiple workflows.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is very good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For our use, scalability is not a problem.

We do not have a very complicated installation, with fifteen users. We do not plan to increase usage at the moment.

How are customer service and support?

I have never used technical support, although support online is good. We have solved our technical issues by looking on the internet.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use another solution before this one but switched because Git was a better product.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup for this solution is complex. Specifically, it is difficult for the average user to configure. One person is enough to handle the maintenance.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the open-source version, which is available free of charge.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this one.

What other advice do I have?

We are satisfied with this product, but updates to the interface would improve usability.
