The Ubuntu Cow

Firstly, I'm sorry that I have posted much over the last few weeks, I have been away.
Just something silly here to keep you entertained for a few minuets; did you know about the Ubuntu Cows? No?!

the first thing to try out then would be the following command:
aptitude moo

and it will give you the line: There are no Easter Eggs in this program.

aptitude -v moo

This will give you a slightly different message from the first one, and you can go all the way up to:
aptitude -vvvvvv moo

(6 v's)

And something else to quickly try out:
apt-get moo

haha, it kills some time. I'm still not quite sure why Ubuntu is so fascinated with Cows yet.. it maybe something to find out about, and tell you on a future post..


  1. hey man.. does this do? I'm really a new fan</b of this blog... I discovered it at 18/01/2009

  2. Hey man... Trie this: apt-get moo

    and this: aptitude -vv

  3. Also try out the command cowsay phrase. You may have to install cowsay (sudo apt-get install cowsay) first to get it to work.
