Depends on what I'm doing. Normally for me it's ksh for scripting and vi style command editing but if I'm having to navigate my way around directories I'll switch to bash because auto-completing directories with tab saves so much time .....

ksh in vi mode also supports auto completion of files/directories. Just press 'Esc' and then '\'. Pressing 'Esc' and then '*' will give you all the files and directories starting with the pattern specified.

I suppose I should really use the ksh auto complete when I'm using Solaris. over the last year we've been building and developing on loads of Linux (SuSe) blades and I've kind of got use to using bash's tab auto-complete and now the tab just seems a little more natural to me....
