Thanks for forcing me to try fish

I have heard people rave about how great fish was vs bash but just never cared enough to switch, so I have always just used bash because it is what is default most of the time. Now that I am on a distro where fish is default, I am trying it for the first time and I really like it. I love that it gives me the * out of the box for password entry, or the suggestions when typing commands and such. It just has some really cool creature comforts I never knew I was missing but am now glad are there. So thanks for having it in by default and getting me to try it out.

Well, you know, teach a man to fish & all that stuff. :wink:

Fish almost killed my Arch install. Be careful with it. It bites back.

Good to know...on an unrelated question, does your name imply you are into Camaros and firebirds?

My dog ate my homework? :thinking:

You have no idea. I deleted it and very bad things happened. Bash for me. I'll save all the fish for you. I'm not cool enough apparently.

Neither am I (ZSH for me). I'm one of those squares that likes POSIX compatibility. :sweat_smile:

Here in Garuda, we are not BASHed, but given free Fish.

My son played hockey with the Bash brothers for years. Think I'll stick with Bash.

I've never tried zsh.

I found my help thread. I had installed fish on two computers, (I thought the same exact way) but in one I ended up with some adage in my bash.bashrc file requiring some time shift help.

I was shocked both systems didn't have it. . . Either way I did figure it out. But it caused quite the headache for a couple days. The second uninstall was like 30 seconds and no issue following their instructions.

It sure does look nice though.
