Humor: Ubuntu Linux Easter Eggs using apt-get and aptitude commands

Earlier today someone in IRC chat room pointed out me an easter egg (hidden feature or message in a game or software or sound track) for Ubuntu Linux.

apt-get command easter egg

Open your terminal and type the command:

apt-get moo

  / |    ||
 *  /\---/\
    ~~   ~~
...."Have you mooed today?"...

aptitude command easter egg

Also try out following at a shell prompt:
aptitude -v moo

There really are no Easter Eggs in this program.

Now try one more time:
aptitude -vv moo

Didn't I already tell you that there are no Easter Eggs in this program?

Heh, keep adding more v options to a command:
aptitude -vvv moo
aptitude -vvvvv moo

I'm sure there are more easter eggs. I'd love to read about more hidden features in the comments section below.

Humor: What does your favorite text editor say about you?

This is nice and funny post - you tell the author what is the default editor on your system, and author will tell you what kind of person you are!

Humor: OSS and Apple Fan boys rejoice

This is sooo funny. Apple released its iPhone and GNU released its GPL v3... what about Microsoft geeks?

Linux Validates as Genuine Windows Advantage (GWA)

No need to apply any crack or hack it is plain simple good old Wine software. It allows to validate an Ubuntu installation as a genuine copy of Microsoft Windows and get to the download page of Windows Defender, using IE4Linux and Wine.

From the Ubuntu forums thread:

I just did this for a laugh and didn't expect it to work. I went to microsoft.com using IE4Linux ( http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page ) and tried to download Windows Defender, on Xubuntu. Of course, I was asked to do the Genuine Advantage test. I used the alternate authentication method (IE4Linux doesn't support Active X), downloaded and then ran the genuine advantage application (which took quite a while to start). It gave me a code that I pasted into the authentication box, and to my surprise it verified me and forwarded me to the download page. This just goes to show how rubbish they're validation software is

April Fools’ Day – All Fools’ Day

Today is Sunday, 1st April and I’m going to see some practical jokes everywhere…

I was just wondering about the origin of this custom. Unfortunately Wikipedia has no information.

I will update this post later on with some good jokes and other stuff :)
