According to the bash 'man page', if bash is invoked by the name sh, it will mimic the startup behavior of the 'sh' shell. You may want to find out how changing the default will effect the startup scripts or environment variables used on your system, before going ahead with a change.
Well yeah. I thought you were trying to tell me that bash when emulating sh it didn't do tab completion. If in your previous post you just meant that sh and bash are two different things then yes. That is right. Bash is the 'Bourne again shell'. While sh is the "original". There are a ton of other shells. csh, tcsh, ksh, zsh, psh. And about a hundred others.
