    I've used Unity and Github Desktop before, but it's been a while, and I'm now getting back up to speed. I noticed there is a package for Unity called Github for Unity. Do you all recommend using that or Github desktop? (I've tried command-line git, but I prefer a GUI.) I'm running Unity 2022 LTS on Windows 11, just making small 2D games with small file sizes. Many thanks!

    The answer to the question of what someone prefers is always subjective. Personally, I'm not a fan of dedicated tools, which are usually not universal. If I'm already using GitHub Desktop, why would I need a separate tool for Unity when I can use the former to handle any project, not just related to Unity? Additionally, it saves time that I would otherwise have to spend getting acquainted with new interfaces and a different presentation of something I already know (basic theory of Git).
