As the question states, what is the best/recommended way of running a bash script after I login the OS?

.bash_profile if you just want it for yourself, and /etc/profile if you want to enforce it for everyone.

That'd be ~/.bash_profile (i.e. in the home directory, just clarifying) –  David Z Jul 9 '10 at 5:49
