Re: Upgrade your shell

I like zsh, and I used grml for many months. Then I took a good look at the huge grml config and realized I had no idea what 98% of it was doing, so I purged it and wrote my own zsh config, learning a lot in the process.

I do still use bash on most of my test machines, because I am just too lazy to install zsh and move my config over on every new install. (Yes, I know it's lame, but I am that lazy.)

Re: Upgrade your shell

Peeps would/should def do a bit of reading up if wanting to dork w shell(s). Curious if you noticed any benefits by switching system shell in Arch HOAS ? What about zsh too, anything that stands out after the switch ... good/bad ?

Outside of just personal preferences I mean ? Would for sure be interested to hear what you've experienced related to shells. Not trying to hijack and will shut it but wanted to try to give folks a hand up on this topic if anyone cared to mess w it.


Vll! smile

Re: Upgrade your shell

Interesting. I've had no issues but I should look into that. Thanks.
