"Some of bash's features are, in no particular order: editing and completion; history and command re-entry; job control; shell functions and aliases; arrays; arithmetic; ANSI C quoting; tilde expansion; brace expansion; substring capabilities; indirect variable expansion; expanded I/O capabilities; control of built-in commands; help; directory stack; POSIX mode; internationalisation; command timing.

bash is the default shell on all popular Linux distributions. For this reason, it's widely used, but rarely to anything like its full potential.
