Slackware easter eggs?


I was looking for Linux easter eggs because, well, they are fun and I was wondering if there is any Slackware easter egg (couldn't find any)?

There has been at least one, authored by Alien Bob, but that has been disclosed

Just start Slackware installer and run pxesetup instead of setup.

There are no real easter eggs in Slackware, merely some under-documented features :-)

There is one hidden in the pom program (Phase Of Moon). No real easter egg either since it was mentioned in the ChangeLog, but it is specific to the Slackware version of pom.

I would like to see a Slackware Pipe, but seriously, some artistically nice wooden pipe.

This is not specific to Slackware, but xfce4-panel has one.

In xfce4-panel, right-click on Panel -> About. Then, left-click on Credits and tictactoe@xfce.org.

A tic-tac-toe game pops up.

In the SlackE17 Enlightenment theme, you can make the penguin in the background "smoke".

An old Easter Egg wasn't actually in the software back in the early days.

Go look for the legendary "Dobbs Head" CDs.
