In June on WWDC10 my boss told me once more that “real artists
ship” and I shipped Gitbox with version 0.9 for free. It looked
clumsy and I really worried that nobody would like it.
But it was a success. A lot of people got interested by a concept
of “one-button” Git client. Never before version control app,
especially for Git, was expected to be “simple” or “minimalistic”
yet useful. A lot of people dismissed it for a lack of features.
But still many fell in love with it from day one and continued
using it daily. For many it became the only way to work with Git
repos without exploding their brains.
