She's the "Super Cow" indeed. It's almost surely a naif joke, maybe
originated on some Kuro5hin forum. The cow looks different from that of
the old famous "cowsay"  Perl script included in Debian since 2001
(but is this really a well-shaped cow?).
I do suppose "Have you mooed today?" loosely relates to Microsoft's
"Where do you want to go today?" motto. APT (and dpkg) is in fact a
powerful tool that made Debian distribution better.
Anyway, I don't know who is the creator of APT cow and easter egg. The
CVS might help to find it!
