    Wink Easter eggs in Linux

    Ok, so I've been browsing the web today, and I decided to search for some cool Linux Easter eggs. I tested them, and here are some - enjoy! (P.S.: Also added screenshots )

    OpenOffice.org - SatarWars game

    1. Create a new sheet in openoffice.org Calc (spreadsheet)
    2. enter this formula
    Code:
    =game()
    and press enter. The cell will display
    "say what?"
    3. Now enter this formula:
    Code:
    =GAME("StarWars")
    A new window will open with a little starward game. But if you type this formula again, the cell will return the display
    oh no, not again!
    . To be able to play again, you need to close the file, close openoffice.org and then make the same.

    Screenshot here

    aptitude moo


    Type
    Code:
    aptitude moo
    & press ENTER. Aptitude responds with
    There are no Easter Eggs in this program.
    Type
    aptitude -v moo
    & press ENTER. This time, the response is
    There really are no Easter Eggs in this program.
    .
    Ok, let's do more!
    Code:
    aptitude -v -v moo
    causes it to respond with
    Didn't I already tell you that there are no Easter Eggs in this program?
    Put some more -v and see those answers yourself

    Screenshot here

    That's it Enjoy!

    Oh, by the way, if you know some good linux earter eggs post them here!

    Manually installing software and setting up your system is always preferable. However, there is not one thing wrong with using Automatix for getting it done the easy way. Get Automatix2 Support Here

    Check out the starwars screensaver. It is sorta interesting. It pulls articles off the internet to display. may require you to install xscreensaver-data package

    Re: Easter eggs in Linux

    The star wars screensaver seems a great idea, but if it pulls things off of the Internet won't it destroy 'cap'?
    In some countries (like South Africa) we are only allowed a three Gig cap and it's bad enough getting those 40 - 80 meg updates each evening!
