up arrow An apt-get Easter Egg

Do you run a Linux variation which uses APT for software distribution? You do? Good, let’s have a little fun. From the command line I want you to run this:

$ apt-get moo

Pretty cool, huh? Okay, let’s try another one. Do you have aptitude installed? If not you can get it like this:

$ apt-get install aptitude

Okay, now that you have that package run this command:

$ aptitude moo

It’s not serious, is it? Let’s add some verbosity:

$ aptitude moo -v

I still don’t believe it, do you? Let’s increase its verbosity with even more v’s:

$ aptitude moo -vv

You get the point now, don’t you? Keep adding v’s to that command until it finally grants your wish….
