I think there's a community around msys. google finds something. I don't
really know myself as I've never felt the urge to get in to touch with them,
git just works "well enough" for us. It is indeed noticably slower than on
Linux, but that's pretty much the same for SVN, or completely unrelated
things like compilation with gcc.
We are also using it in a MinGW based environment, i.e. pretty much in the
same context as Eli's setup, so I am really not sure why our experiences
differ so much. Perhaps it's really the integration with the emacs VCS interface
that makes the difference here. But then, editor integrations are fixable ;-}
