Why? Does git have the level of integration with Windows as TortoiseSVN?

Also, what's "clearly" to you may be less obvious by others, or even
untrue for others, since they might have other criteria to judge by.
You didn't ever hear me say Subversion is the best VC. I just said
that - if you want a centralised system - Subversion is a choice which
integrates well with Windows.

Btw, neither do I say git isn't a good VC, so I'm not really getting
where the name-calling came from.
