Quite tempted to join in with this challenge, and make an effort to do things more properly than when I accidentally switched my laptop to bsd a few months ago. since i will have to change my servers around in a few months, would a complete immersion, but server-only instance of this be reasonable?

Given the kernel is mach, a lot of people seem to be confused. macOS has a lot of BSD command line tools in it, but the kernel isn’t BSD at all.

Yeah and even there, Apple have written a lot of their own tools. And there’s still some GNU in there too. But apple haven’t updated any of the GNU stuff since GPL3 came out, hence the push for clang, and the ancient version of bash…

GPL3 is definitely considered hostile.

i get by with tcsh on bsd boxes (it does do autocomplete), and use plain old sh for scripting (just like the bad old days on slowlaris :smiley: ). i don’t bother installing any shells myself, but yeah, bash and zsh are both in ports.
