Unless you are in Windows or OS X. OS X has a shell, but not bash.

I don't see this as a big advantage.

This one is.

The language doesn't change much from different versions of bash either way.

- the language is part of POSIX

Which means you don't need bash, you can use dash, or zsh, or many other shells.

- the language is simple

It's so simple it's used in shells.

- no need for extensions

All you need is the shell binary, that's it.
