fish shell

I've been using bash shell for a long time.  I looked around for a better shell, and tried a few -- and decided to try fish shell. (http://fishshell.com/)

The compilation failed in my VPS running CentOS 6 64-bit for some reason ("missing ncurses" but all ncurses packages are installed), but found RPM from here, http://rpm.pbone.net/.  This saves a lot of time of mucking around with the source code and make files.

fish user document is here, http://fishshell.com/docs/current/

To change the default shell, issue "chsh" command.

So far it's good.  Try it if you haven't.
