Git for Windows and the secret GNU Toolchain


I wanted Git on my Windows system. I went to install Git-Scm.

It seems that Git-Scm comes with a lot of the GNU tools:


I wanted to access them on the console.

So I went to:

My Computer ‣ Properties ‣ Advanced ‣ Environment Variables

Edit the system environment variable Path and added C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin.

And now I have access to all the little GNU tools on my Windows box. :)
