Hi,

I'm an Linux user who also happens to use OS X, and I love that you have shell functionality in Mac OS X, but unfortunately, it is, to me anyways, pretty limited when you are coming from Linux.
I understand that the Terminal (and bash) that is bundled with Snow Leopard is using some "old" version of bash, and I wonder if there is some way to get more bash power in? Maybe an alternative shell that contains more packages and gets updated more frequently or something?

In the essentials, just getting more raw power in to the terminal - like vanilla linux.

Have a nice one,
ChrisBuchholz

Is there a specific feature you're looking for? You can upgrade some packages.
Well, it really just occured to me that I noticed the lag of wget. But that I had in mind, was more like an "complete" packages, if you get what I'm saying?
