Telnet is already installed on Bash. You can simply telnet to any endpoint you desire.
If you have some time and would like to have some fun, try to telnet the following address [spoiler alert J]:
Play beep ^
With the commands echo -e 'a' and echo -en "\007", you can produce a beep from your Bash.
If you put this code at the end of your commands, you will hear a "beep" each time your commands are executed.
With the cmatrix package, you can have a "Matrix effect" on your terminal. Just install the package using this command:
sudo apt-get install cmatrix
Type “Cmatrix” to enter the Matrix.
ASCII Animation ^
You might also like this this cool ASCII animation of the bb package:
Sudo apt-get install bb
Another Easter egg for apt-get ^
In my previous post, I mentioned the Easter egg in VIM. There is another Easter egg in the apt-get command in which a cow does a “moo” for you.
It’s obvious that the Bash support on Windows 10 is a bridge between open source technology and the Windows ecosystem. We could all agree that this is just a starting point for Microsoft. It is just beta and there are several bugs and unsupported functions, but Redmond is working hard to collect all the feedback and improve the next version. Microsoft is also working with the community and customers to amend the Windows command-line tools and console. You can always use the UserVoice page to provide feedback to the team.
