Since nearly two years now, I've been a fan of Git.
is a popular site to host one's code on Git, yet, the fact that to have private hosting, one needs to pay has always nagged me (I just need a small repository for now).
Lately, I found out about Bitbucket
who offers free public and private hosting; so I gave it a try.
Connection via Git Bash was pretty straight forward; connection via Git Extensions took a little bit more work. Finally, I found the easiest way was to use PuTTY
to manage the authentication.
I'm quite happy with the Bitbucket service
. If anybody has counter-arguments in favor of GitHub concerning this case, I'd be very happy to hear them
