That's not entirely fair...
I use bash as my login shell, and even with 37 processes running, and
an X environment, I only have one instance of bash running. Almost all
the programs I am running are started by X, in one way or another. The
only bash is the shell for the xterm I typed "top" into. If bash
weren't my login shell, I wouldn't have any.
A quick survey of scripts in various directories on my system turns up
# of bash-script Directory
And I don't have a complete system.
