<doctor who> It's the fish. They like the singing. </doctor who> –  Tom O'Connor Dec 25 '10 at 20:21
    
This is highly opinionated, and really isn't ServerFault material. Use "the Google" for things like this. –  Andrew M. Dec 25 '10 at 21:14

The food at this xmas party is pretty lame. I could really go for some shellfish instead... Oh? What's that? Fish shell? Come on now, /usr/bin/fish? A shell that purports to be friendly and interactive? You must be kidding. –  jscott Dec 25 '10 at 21:47
    
Sorry guys, as a linux newbie, i tried to check the fishshell.org site to get more information, after i read here that it would be more userfriendly. my intend was to get more info on what features it provide since the information i found via google was not very helpful. anyway now i test it on my own :) –  NES Dec 25 '10 at 22:09
    
When a bare Google search fails, usually a second good place to check is Wikipedia. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friendly_interactive_shell –  Zoredache Dec 27 '10 at 22:33

What are you looking for that the FAQ, documentation, or the person who said "fish shell is awesome" hasn't told you?

(In other words, this is a question you should research yourself to see if it meets your needs...)
