There are many shells in UNIX operating system, such as
sh (Born Shell), ksh(Korn Shell), csh (C Shell), etc.
In linux, most popular shell is bash (Born Again Shell).
This shell has more powerful and convenient functions.
If you can create shell script, the shell gives you more
convenience.

Basically, every shell do same thing, but more present shell has more powerful things.
For example,
sh has no syntax completion, but bash has.

I recommend to use bash if you do not have some experience
in using shells.

For more information, type following command in your linux box.
$ man bash
