Just curious - whats your favourite shell and why?

Lately I've been reading about the different shells. I'd like to try something other than bash (with tab completion preferably.)

Bash for me. Never used anything else, and nothing bothers me in Bash enough to swtich.
I have never seen a bash ( on a few different systems ) without tab-completion ! You may want to emerge bash-completion, to get tab completion of stuff like emerge commands....

Plenty of threads already exist on this topic. I believe if you search around there is one even with a poll. I think Bash is winning though! :P

Code:
$ export BASH_VOTES=$((${BASH_VOTES}+1))
