Wasn't Solaris, which for awhile at least, was probably the most popular
Unix, using ksh by default?
Solaris /bin/sh was a real real dumb version of the bourne shell.
Solaris included /bin/ksh as part of the core distribution (ksh88 was a
part of the SVr4 specification) and so many scripts were written with
#!/bin/ksh at the start (including tools like "patchadd").

The basic system had very few scripts that required ksh.
