"dash" is a POSIX compliant shell that is much smaller than "bash". Dash supports many features that a real sh shell would support, however it is much smaller in size. This becomes an advantage in situations where there is a lack of memery (initial ram-disks, etc). dash does lack a few features, like command line history. dash is the continuation of the original NetBSD ash fork. dash is much more up-to-date, and properly maintained. You should install dash if you need a near featureful lightweight shell that is similar to GNU's bash. This version is statically compiled.
