Most FreeBSD shell scripts seem to be written for /bin/sh. Many FreeBSD users
seem to pick one of bash, ksh, or zsh for their interactive shell, and just
take a bit of care when writing scripts to use syntax which is
backward-compatible with /bin/sh.
If you're happy with bash, there's no reason not to use with FreeBSD as well.
