A new category last year, and a run-away poll.

Bash. Fish did catch my eye but I never really got around to installing it...

I like fish syntax highlighting but I'm sticking to bash because it benifits from being univerisal.

Definitely bash for me, but I have a few friends who are tcsh devotees. I've wanted to sit down seriously with fish or zsh as they both look really cool, but I just have never been motivated to do so.

I know bash will take it, but I had to vote for tcsh. As for the conception that bash is universal... it's one of my biggest pet peeves. It's universal in Linux, true... but not universally.

I voted for ZSH because it has the best command completion. FISH is pretty good as well.

Voted for bash, even though the fact bash is probably the most popular default shell doesn't mean it's the best. But bash is the best for me. At least for now. Lets see again in 1 year when I have more experience with other shell types

Thumbs up Bash

Hard to say anything about the others, but I've always used just Bash. I guess I'll have to check other some day.
