What shell do you use?

@Meztli what other shells do people use?
I used csh and ksh in the old days, but wouldn't use them now.


@shapr @Meztli

tcsh was on both IRIX and OS X when I used them, so that was a thing. I've tried to become more aware of bashisms from time to time but can't much be bothered anymore.

@deejoe @Meztli My second tech job I was sysadmin for IRIX, AIX, HP-UX, SuSE, Solaris, and SunOS. Company owner convinced me that being a Java coder was enough experience to do that job.
It was not.
I got fired after six months.
The previous sysadmin asked me who had been running the billing scripts.
I said, what billing scripts?
I can still drive IRIX, but my memory is blurry from the stress.



I learned mostly in "if we knew what we were doing it wouldn't be research" labs, much more forgiving & fewer types of Unix at once.
