Hi all,
      Most of us use bash by default. And bash is not intuitive atleast for
people who are new to the system. I'm sure there have been suggestions made
for this before & would be made after me and I guess the people maintaining
bash would have some valid points why things like intelligent history
completion, tab-completion, having color support have not been made
defaults. Please lemme know any links or rationale which are behind these
      Couple of links https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Spec/EnhancedBash as well as
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bash/+bug/103929 which want to do
this. Of course there are others like fishshell http://fishshell.org/ which
do the same thing but my question is why not bash? Hoping for some
constructive comments on this. Thanx for your time.
