Bash predates Linux.  Bash was first released in 1989.  Linux wasn't
released until 1991.

Bash is the GNU shell, and the GNU utilities were first used on commercial
Unix systems.
   Thanks for the history lesson (for those of us who were too lazy to
goog it ;-)).
Still, on what OS has it shown the most growth or popularity?
Has there been any other shell that's seen as much use on linux as bash? While I had worked on other unix systems (sun, hp, sgi that I remember), I
didn't encounter bash until I saw it on linux.  Before that, I mostly
used ksh as having some "comfort"s over 'sh'.
   91 was also the year Unicode was first approved (Oct).  Isn't that
an slightly interesting coincidence? :-)
