What's the difference between OS X Tiger shell and RedHat Fedora Linux shell? How different between them. (I use RedHat Fedora Linux, but still waiting for the iBook to arrive)

For the core POSIX commands it is basically the same, maybe a foible here or there but nothing tragic. The directory structure is a little different and if you are used to Linuxisms you might find a command or two you are used to that are missing.

Which shell do you usually use? Bash shell is the default for Tiger though zsh and ksh are available as well. I assume others are available as well, those are the ones I use though.

I'm used to whatever the RedHat Fedora's default shell is, Bash, maybe.
