Github Desktop

Github desktop is only for Windows. They have some slightly different ones for Linux, but I couldn't figure out how to use them. Can someone tell me how.

Thanks.

In my opinion, there is no good, free and open source, complete Git GUI that's cross-platform (and thus works on GNU/Linux).

I would advise you to learn the Git command-line, basic operations are not that hard. Note that some editors like Atom have plugins to assist in Git usage (git-plus in Atom's case).

Mostly reason Windows got a desktop is due, It command-line can't be setup same like Linux.
But once you get hang of it (Linux) you, will go far :) I use through my own little IDE that can pull git requests. Idk if can push them through.
I'm a Transgender no shame about it.

Indeed, Git for Windows works quite well. In fact, Microsoft has even contributed to it.
