Cool bash shell in a web page. OMGUbuntu have done well this time.

This is a BASH shell in a web page. Check this cool trick out. They have created a cool April fools joke that all Linux users can enjoy. I wish there was a Powershell website that allowed you to use Powershell 3.0 in a web browser; but this is still very cool indeed. There is also a good Linux emulation at and this has more commands available; but the OMGUbuntu easter egg truly is a cool thing to find when you are searching the Internet for Ubuntu news. The vim command does not work; there are only a handful that do, but I just had to post about this as it is truly Linux related. The point of this page is to emulate an Xorg crash and dump the website visitor at a virtual console from the graphical website. If you type cd articles and hit ENTER you can browse the website with the command-line. Quite a different approach to web design. Type cd articles/2000/November and then type wget “UDS STARTS TOMORROW” to view a cool image. There is another shell emulation here using FreeBSD. Use this to practice UNIX shell commands on any operating system: The Internet truly has everything you could ever need.

I tell ya, gambling never agreed with me.  Last week I went to the track
and they shot my horse with the opening gun.

Well, just last week I was at a Chinese restaurant and when I opened my 
fortune cookie I found the guy's check sitting at the next table.  I said, 
"Hey, buddy, I got your check", he said, "Thanks."

Above is what the UNIX emulation looks like, With a cool Rodney Dangerfield quote. And below is the kernel version that the UNIX emulation uses. Give this one a try if you want to try out the UNIX shell.
