actually, *any* modern ksh variant, including both oksh and mksh would be
better than tcsh as default shell. both would be a huge improvement over the
rotting pile of poop that is tcsh

and if you're going to qualify, you better know wtf you're talking about,
because mksh is used by android and red hat

the only major os, excluding variants, with tcsh on the base system is freebsd

nevermind that the tcsh comparison was done way before anyone explained mksh...
