Jul 12, 2016 at 17:01 comment added Charles D Pantoga The only thing that ZSH has out of the box that is better than BASH is command completion, but even that is programmable in BASH. Maybe somebody who doesn't use the shell except for occasional mundane tasks should adopt ZSH, but it's not for anybody who needs to use the shell extensively. the =~ operator can bite you, the way ZSH handles arrays can bite you, etc. After using ZSH/Oh-My-ZSH for about 9 months I had enough of it. I was using a custom theme that I wrote myself, I ported it to BASH and wrote my own git promptline and I've never looked back. Now I no longer worry about portability
Jul 12, 2016 at 16:56 comment added Charles D Pantoga If I could, I would downvote this for the Oh-My-ZSH suggestion. As a systems engineer who works extensively in the Terminal, and as somebody who tried to adopt zsh/oh-my-zsh into my workflow, I can honestly say I would never recommend ZSH to anyody. Sure, you can symlink zsh to a file named after any other shell and emulate that shell, but when you do that it doesn't read your .bashrc, .bash_profile, etc. Also, you cannot put emulate bash in your .zprofile or .zshrc files. For anybody who works with advanced features in BASH, there are many subtleties that will bite you. BASH is a better sh.
