shells available

By default, most users are running the bash shell.

Files that control the bash shell include the .bashrc file, which you are free to view and edit:

cat .bashrc
atom .bashrc

In the .bashrc you can create aliases and set environment variables.

There are, however, other shells you can run, such as zsh and fish.

You can run these shells right from the command line (try typing fish), or use the chsh command to change your default shell (i.e., which shell is started, every time you log in).
