Git is not critical to clean code, but any change management system that allows for reviews.

I get Git is latest go-to solution, personally I hate it. It's a Git to use! ( Learn some English slang if you don't know what I mean )

Yes, Andrew, you're correct ofcourse. Thanks for the clarification, I'll be sure to mention that in future posts.
GIT is not required to write clean code, but a version control system certainly make refactorings and code management much easier. About GIT specifically, I don't share your aversion to it. I'd agree GIT has a learning curve and takes time to get to know (hence the late position in the list), but it is quite powerful. And with the huge amount of GIT tools, it does get simpler to use.

It's not intuitive though and this is it's biggest weakness
