Discussion on: A brief difference between zsh and bash

For me the biggest gain of Zsh is not the speed (I can't convince a fellow developer to save a few milliseconds every day :-P ) but the fact that it comes it themes and customizations. The Spaceship theme for example has been a real favourite, because it's easier on the eyes for long term use AND it actually saves me time due to the colour combinations giving me perspective faster.

I've been using the starship prompt lately. Takes care of everything I need out of the box.

With starship, we don't have to worry much about the shell as it works on top of it and provides easy customizations. :)

I love zsh themes. There are plenty to choose from and each has amazing colour contrast. I am using Avit will try Spaceship theme. It is a difference of few milliseconds but it is taking just twice the time and this can be useful when performing heavy operations !
