Ubuntu / Linux / Unix Easter Eggs: Steam Locomotive, Moo, Cowsay, Lord of the Rings Calendar, Watch Star Wars from Terminal, about:robots, gegls from outer space

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you some Ubuntu / Linux / Unix Easter Eggs. No, I do not refer to the coloured eggs we smash on Easter, but some terminal entertainment.

1. SL:

sl stands for Steam Locomotive.

When you type sl, accidentally instead of ls, you get a Locomotive, if you install the sl package:

$ sudo apt-get install sl
$ sl

$ fortune | cowsay
