bash for me (although the /bin location is rather dubious)

As a mac/linux/sun admin, I like that it seems to have the least cross-platform issues. Plus, as previously stated, the vi-style history mode is brilliant.

I write all my scripts in bash, and have for years now, so I suppose I'm a bit of a bash guru

Shell features Compare

Bourne Shell --Very old Shell,not that many Functionalities

C shell -- No VI Command line editing ,follow C rules.

Korn shell -- Have features of both Bourne and some of C, and has Powerful VI Command line Editing.

bash Shell -- Have all the features including Command line
editing ,substitution commands

Mostly Developers prefer ksh.
