Not everything in Linux is serious, fortunately we can find fun programs created for the sole purpose of entertaining us. You may be wondering why? Well, because we are human and at the end of the day we need a little variety, laughter and maybe a drink on the train. And yes, speaking of the train, let’s introduce you to the first fun command-type application in Linux.

1. Command: sl (Steam Locomotive)

The train command is based on one of the most famous commands in Linux, namely ls only inverted sl. If you accidentally, without wanting to, confuse the command you will get a fun train that passes through the screen.

# Ubuntu \ Debian install apt-get install sl # Red Hat install yum -y install sl # FreeBSD install pkg install sl
