From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

I’ve been using fish for years, and highly recommend it. In particular, I find that fish has excellent contextual completion based on folder as well as great highlighting.
I tried and liked it a lot years ago. But the piping wasn’t asynchronous so you have to wait the full completion of the first command for the next.
I’m not sure about the current state but if that is fixed I would happily fully switch.
Looks like the latest version streams output from one command to the other. For example, when I run
for i in (seq 1 5); sleep 1; echo $i; end | catI see the numbers show up one at a time.
