Whats the difference between the new Git Windows: https://windows.github.com/ then the one he is using?

Because the Git Windows seems to not be accessed via command tool, rather it has a interface. Is there any difference? Which one should I use?

Well GitHub for Windows only interfaces remotely with GitHub and not other services or git servers (like Bitbucket or a private server) but it does include git itself as well as some shell consoles to use it with. You should have gotten a 2nd program installed with it called Git Shell, and you can choose the type to use as a default in the UI program's settings. (I prefer Git Bash because it mimics the Linux console fairly well).
