Easter Egg

Well, it's little bit late but better late then never, right? Here is some of easter egg found on my Breezy box:

1. Mozilla
Type about:mozilla on URL field then press enter. You will see some of
phrase from The Book of Mozilla 7:15

2. OpenOffice Calc 2.0
Type Game("StarWars") in any cell, then press enter. Surprise!!!

3. Apt-get
Anyone who has used a Debian based system is probably aware of APT's supercow powers. If you type "apt-get" in a terminal and press ENTER, you'll notice a message at the bottom that says "This APT has Super Cow Powers". When you type "apt-get moo", you'll get a message asking "Have you mooed today?"

If you try the same in aptitude, you get the message "There are no Easter Eggs in this program". Of course, it's lying! Try a "aptitude -vv moo", then "aptitude -vvv moo", increasing the v's which usually means verbosity. Aptitude will eventually give up and give you an Egg :)

4. Ubuntu Names
# zcat /usr/share/doc/linux-image-`uname -r`/changelog.Debian.gz | egrep -e "Release"
zgrep "The.*Release" /usr/share/doc/dpkg/changelog.Debian.gz
