Do I use Git Bash, Git CMD, or Git GUI for these lessons?

I have windows 10 and I have installed Git onto my laptop in the past. Which Git do i use? The Git folder on my computer has these 3 choices.

Hi Joel,

Take a look at this StackOverflow post discussing this.

It sounds like Git CMD uses Windows Powershell, and Git Bash is creating a more Linux-like command line experience. I Personally I think I'd use Git Bash on Windows, since it's more likely in the future you'll end up messing around with bash on Linuxy systems (web hosts, for example), but whatever works for you! The idea is just to get you used to the idea of version control and command line usage.

Best, Cena
