#git-bash Portal

Git Bash is a Windows shell that is packaged with Git for Windows. It uses MSYS2 (Minimal SYStem 2) and MinGW (Minimalist GNU for Windows) to emulate the bash shell that is familiar to nix-⁠nux users. It is sometimes called “msys bash.”

Git Bash is entirely different from the Linux git and Linux bash that are part of WSL (Windows' Subsystem for Linux).
