Starting from a challenge posed to the Linux community to stop using commercial version control, Git has proved itself. Git embodies a well architected, high performance implementation of distributed version control.

Git’s popularity is supported by the existence of GitHub. GitHub combines public and private Git repositories, social networking, and a host of other innovative tools and approaches.
