has anyone gone to the apt help sheet? at the very bottom it shows:

This APT has Super Cow Powers.


Type apt-get moo

Just curious on exactly what this is for...

It's just an Easter Egg. Aptitude responded in kind by telling people it "Does not have Super Cow Powers." Linux has a lot of easter eggs.

Yes, but if you push it hard enough, it will eventually surrender.
