Too many resources?

Lets compare top output for zsh and tcsh:

PID USERNAME PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE TIME WCPU CPU COMMAND

809 jandrese 20 0 2808K 2368K pause 0:00 0.00% 0.00% zsh

15629 jandrese 20 0 2372K 1720K pause 0:00 0.00% 0.00% tcsh

A whopping 650k difference in memory use. Unless your school's computers are 15 years old the "it uses too many resources" excuse is really weak.

Re: Consider zsh
Just respont to J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) in
tcsh appindex.
I have using Zsh as my default shell for over a year. It really the most powerful Shell that I see and got many attractive feature...
However, some people complain that the zsh using too much resouces (I run it in my school server - SunOS) , then I was forced
to use back tcsh.

Now, I think Shell needn't to be so powerful. So I happy with the Bash.

Have Z shell impove it loading recently? coz my last Z Shell is 2.4 and haven't us it for 1-2 years :P
