View Full Version : What shell do you use?

May 4th, 2009, 04:25 AM
I'm curious; which login shell do you use? I personally switched from bash to rc, and I can't imagine going back; rc is just awesome, not to mention its piping abilities make bash look obsolete.

bash for now

bash is the standard shell for Linux, so you're going to have a very lopsided poll. :)

I do not use shells and I do not like shells. I am a GUI person. Well unless I really have to.

When I do , I usually use python. Usually with my ipod touch through mobileterminal.

although i love ipython, unfortunately they aren't realy focussed on making it a normal day to day shell, so they have a few features missing, but hey ho, we can hope

I think I've been missing out due to laziness, and am about to install zsh :) looks great

I use the zsh for my login shells, although I also have a bashrc which mimics the zsh login shell.

Shell scripting I do in bash, since most of my co-workers and friends use bash, so they can use my scripts without too much hassle.

I think my name oughta say it but I actually put "b@sh" in "b@sh_n3rd" coz I really like the CLI in Linux and err...that happens to be the only shell I've used so far...However, I read that article on zsh and am gonna give it a spin...:D.

EDIT: I tried zsh and so far it's cool...so I think I say zsh...:D
