The Bourne shell is considered the primary shell in scripts. All UNIX systems have it, first of all. Second, the shell is small and fast. It doesn't have the interactive features of the C shell, but so what? Interactive features aren't much use in scripts. There are also some features the Bourne shell has that the C shell doesn't have. All in all, many consider the Bourne shell to be the best shell for writing portable UNIX scripts.
