Hi,

I'm wondering about whether I should use SVN, Github or Git. I'm familiar with SVN as I have the SVN server on my Windows 7 (only locally though). I don't know anything about Github or Git? Are they the same even?

I'm wondering if I use Github if I'll set passwords for the code and directories as it's mainly used for my clients.

I'm using Tortoise SVN but does Github have a nice graphical interface like Tortoise so I can see which files haven't been committed, which have been added and so forth like the screenshot.

GitHub is a web-based hosting service that use the Git revision control system.  To use GitHub you need to be using Git.  

There are several nice graphical user interfaces for Get:

The fundamental difference between SVN and Git is that SVN is Centralized while Git is Distributed.

Let me add 1c in defence of SVN:

With SVN hotcopy it is some step closer to distributed
No GIT client beats windows TortoiseSVN
And SVN does very well with related huge binary files (e.g. mdb )
