Better to use Git Bash or Git CMD?

I am installing Git on my computer because I rather learn it on my computer rather than the workspace treehouse provides. When installing, I am prompted to use Git Bash or Git CMD, which one is better/should be used?

Most of the examples you'll see online are for bash - I'd consider this the default choice but most of the time it's not going to be a meaningful choice (and you can always change later if you have to).
