    There is in git one more place, where you may store you changes, Stash.

    See visual studio uservoice idea about git-stash support and vote for it. It will be more useful than just discontented comments here.

    One area I'd like to see covered in a "getting started with Git" presentation series is how to cope with migrating solutions from other version control systems. I'm using Component Software's "CS-RCS", which is GNU-RCS compatible, and plugs in to Visual Studio. Sadly, the company is no longer operating, and their web site is dead.
