I'm surprised the system does not come with bash (a GNU shell). For scripts, csh's syntax is very awkward while bash stays with the more traditional sh syntax. bash also has all of ksh's features.

But, what I really wanted to say is that command history is great. If you get deeper into Unix, you will discover tons of keyboard short cuts since Unix is totally command line oriented. The bash man page, to me, has the best summary of command history and all the other shell stuff in a concise form.
