This lab focuses on exploring different Unix shells beyond the commonly used bash shell. Users can choose from various shells like sh, zsh, and ksh, each of which may have unique configuration and history files. Specifically, you will need to identify a user who uses the zsh shell and examine their .zsh_history file.

The challenge involves navigating a system with around 80 users, making it impractical to manually check each home directory for zsh configuration files. Instead, you will employ the find command to locate the .zsh_history file for the user who uses zsh. Once found, reviewing this file will reveal the key needed to complete the challenge.
