** Debian & Ubuntu **

- Painless Upgrades
- No surprises

** System Rescue CD **

- Excellent Rescue System(like it more than Knoppix or GRML)
- For Sysadmins
- Espececially for Rescue Tasks

** Knoppix **

- Best Live Distribution in Terms of GUI/End User Applications

** LEDE/OpenWRT **

- Gets you more out of your router
- Some Devices are available preinstalled with it(GL.inet: Really cheap! For Turris Omnia partly, because that's no pure OpenWRT)
- Can be difficult to find supported hardware(Did I say I prefer Hardware with that OS preinstalled? :-) )

NAME
chsh - change your login shell SYNOPSIS
chsh [-s shell] [-l] [-u] [-v] [username] DESCRIPTION
chsh is used to change your login shell. If a shell is not given on the command line, chsh prompts for one. chsh is used to change local entries only. Use ypchsh, lchsh or any other implementation for non-local entries. OPTIONS
-s, --shell shell Specify your login shell. -l, --list-shells Print the list of shells listed in /etc/shells and exit. -u, --help Print a usage message and exit. -v, --version Print version information and exit. VALID SHELLS
chsh will accept the full pathname of any executable file on the system. However, it will issue a warning if the shell is not listed in the /etc/shells file. On the other hand, it can also be configured such that it will only accept shells listed in this file, unless you are root. EXIT STATUS
Returns 0 if operation was successful, 1 if operation failed or command syntax was not valid. SEE ALSO
