Discussion on: How do YOU configure Git for Windows?

I have a dotfiles repo, so I just create a Symbolic Link on ~/.gitconfig that points to my local repository. Actually, I've been doing that with a lot of files, and also experimenting with a setup process written in PowerShell.

A nice addition to my config was conditional includes on .gitconfig, allowing me to override settings based on the current working directory I'm using Git on.

I use that for setting my GPG commit-signing keys for work and personal projects.

You'll find that Git on Windows works pretty much as on Linux, I never found myself missing a feature or something like that.
