Discussing UNIX shells wise, I like bash, but that's not the point of this writeup.
Shell is owned by the Royal Dutch Shell Group
. It was founded in 1907 when the company, a British
importer of mother-of-pearl
, (Then Royal Dutch Shell Company
.) decided to go in to the oil
business. The company did well, using the growing American
demand for fuel in the 1900s, their first station opened in Washington in 1912. In 1922, the company merged with Union Oil
of Delaware becoming a publicly owned company by the name of Shell Union Oil Company. It became privately owned in 1985 when its current owner regained complete control.
