Where does the "Did you already MOO today..." come from? I can't find
anything related to it.
Something that seem to be related to it in Debian is:
$ apt-get moo
/ | ||
...."Have you mooed today?"...
Which seems to be a cow to me.
An other I can think of is distributed.net who has a logo of a cow (or
bovine), and the button to get the client says "Moo". You'll find lots
of references to moo and bovine on their site.
