I do not know how well zsh is positioned to become default shell in distros.

My goal is towards enhancing the default shell found in mainstream
distributions.
This helps in training new users, and getting bigger adoption of FLOSS
to the masses.
For example, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Spec/EnhancedBash
for the spec to change the default shell settings. It's an amazing
usability opportunity and task. And a really difficult one as well.

Cheers,
Simos
