I'll bash you!

Seriously, zsh is really cool, but I still find myself using bash all the time.

My experience with others beside the Bourne-Again Shell is insufficient for a reasonable reply, so I won't answer this one.

I definitely think he has a valid point ;) Your ratio is quite bad,
validity of RFCs on forums aside.

bash makes a sys admins life easy, both usage and scripting. Haven't come across anything more powerful yet.

For a Lxer,of course,bash!Because many distros use bash for default,and it is easy to use and script.

KDE all the way for me Like others on here, I have tryed so many different window managers, and none of them have grabbed my full attention.
You can make any window manager look pretty, but when it comes down to usability - KDE is on top of my list.

Damn I could of sworn i posted this on another poll ignore this post sorry

silly shell question

Okay, this question is like trying to compare a model T ford, stutz-bearcat, '55 T-bird, '67 vet, and a '71 mustang with a 2006 BMW 500 series. Of course Bash is the best shell. It is the newest and most complete of the shells. Maybe it has something to do with it being the standard shell of Linux, the most popular of the UNIX like OSes.
