I’ve been using the “fish” shell for 20 months now, and today’s the day I’ll stop. Syntax highlighting is nice, but not worth installing a custom shell for. Also, POSIX compatibility is more important to me.

Back to bash, I guess! (Also, I’ll have a look at zsh at some point.)

@scy I mostly enjoy the history feature with fish and that loops are more readable imho. But yes no posix/bash compability is a big bummer

@scy Spannend, was macht denn die POSIX-Kompatibilität so wichtig für Dich? Ich bin mittlerweile auf Elvish (elv.sh) umgestiegen, pure Go, so kann ich dran mithacken und Bugs fixen, das war mir persönlich viel wichtiger.
