Question question about lsh shell

I use LSH, and it shows 'C:\>.' What's wrong?

I don't think that they would ruin linux with M$ $hell.

By the way, I think M$ are old s about licensing. (They are too proprietary, and are so pricy)

But seriousely, why M$?

lsh is a shell designed to mimic DOS (not neccesarily MS-DOS though, since there's also FreeDOS, DR-DOS, N-DOS, Q-DOS 4DOS etc). It's supposed to make life a little easier for *nix-newbies who already have some experience with DOS. I think development ceased in the late 1990s.

It should not be confused with lsh, the free secure shell implementation, ( ).

Forgot! DOS is made by different companies!

Posix actually is "domain:directory# or $ but DOS is drive letter :directory >

e.g. Posix is "debian:~#" (root) or "admin@debian:~$" (limited). Dos is "C:\root>" or "C:\home\admin>" all the time.

I started w/ bash, the normal LINUX Shell.

PS: by the way if you add a ".com" by your domain you'd come up with an Email formatted domain in the shell! for
instance if my domain was "," it would say "$" isn't that strange!
