Ubuntu 16.04 - My Favourite Feature

So the latest version of Ubuntu isn't an earth-shattering release, full of never before seen new features, but there's one very small tweak that pleases me no end! It would seem that the maintainers of the Apt Package Management system, have decided to shorten the package name in it's use, so that instead of having to type:

sudo apt-get install package

It has become possible to instead type:

sudo apt install package

They do say that small things please little minds! Don't they.
