I think bash will win this one because many people don't seem to experiment with other shells. Anyway my vote goes to zsh because its tab completion features are just awesome.

KimVette - c'mon, you know better than that. For everyone, before posting ask yourself the following question: am I adding to the thread by posting my words and are my words useful in the context of the thread?
