I converted from Linux to OpenBSD about a year ago and have never
regretted the move. (Thanks to everyone behind OpenBSD!!!)
Coming from Linux one of the first things I did was to install bash
and make it my default shell. As far as I remember the main reason
was because sh would not auto-complete by pressing tab. Now I
suddenly got the enlightenment that maybe the choice in favor of sh
as the default shell in OpenBSD was made for a reason and maybe I
should say goodbye to bash.
Now here comes my question: why was sh chosen as the default shell
and what are it's advantages over bash?
