Several Nice Linux Easter Eggs

Although some of this stuff is old, here are some funny Easter eggs I bumped into over time.

In APT
Fire up a terminal and type the following, one command at a time:

aptitude moo
aptitude -v moo
aptitude -v -v moo
aptitude -v -v -v moo
aptitude -v -v -v -v moo
aptitude -v -v -v -v -v moo
aptitude -v -v -v -v -v -v moo

Here's a screenshot:


Here's another one. Open a terminal and type apt-get moo:


Easter egg in Firefox 3
Open up Firefox 3 and type into the location bar: about:robots

There's even a little bit more in the Firefox one. If you click on [Try Again], it changes to [Please do not press this button again.]. If you click on that one, it just goes away.
