I don’t think it matters, any tool you use will create a bunch of support files for whatever reason it has. Settings, tracking, state… There is always something. Especially if working with Visual Studio and Git-TF or Git-TFS, make sure your .gitignore file is in order. Realizing what that means, you probably do not want to write your own, so there is one created for almost all environments.

.gitignore on GitHub saves your life.

Update: I got a tips on an additional gitignore resource called GitIgnore.io which generates .gitignore files according to your spec. Perhaps you need to include both Windows and OS X and several editors? This is the tool for you! Thanks @sodper.
