If you like bash for interactive use but don't care that emacs use it
internally, you can just write your own function to run a bash shell,
and use that instead of M-x shell.  This lets emacs use cmd/cmdproxy
for running things internally (like compile, grep, etc), but you get
the bash you want for interactive use.

I have this in my .emacs to set this up:

;; Set up shell and bash commands
;; create a shell buffer, but not necessarily called *shell*
(defun ewd-shell (&optional bufname)
"Just like `shell', only takes buffer name as argument."
 (require 'shell)
 (if (null bufname) (setq bufname "shell"))
 (if (not (comint-check-proc (concat "*" bufname "*")))
     (let* ((prog (or explicit-shell-file-name
                      (getenv "ESHELL")
                      (getenv "SHELL")
            (name (file-name-nondirectory prog))
            (startfile (concat "~/.emacs_" name))
            (xargs-name (intern-soft (concat "explicit-" name "-args")))
         (set-buffer (apply 'make-comint bufname prog
                            (if (file-exists-p startfile) startfile)
                            (if (and xargs-name (boundp xargs-name))
                                (symbol-value xargs-name)
         (setq shell-buffer (current-buffer))
       (pop-to-buffer shell-buffer))
   (pop-to-buffer (concat "*" bufname "*"))))

;; create a bash buffer called *bash*
(defun ewd-bash()
 "Runs the bash shell"
 (let* ((shell-file-name "bash")
        (explicit-shell-file-name shell-file-name)
        (explicit-sh-args '("-login" "-i"))
        (w32-quote-process-args ?\")) ;; Use Cygnus quoting rules.
   (ewd-shell "bash")))
