HiI second this!
It seems that pretty much all unixes alias "more" to "less" these days.
It would be very nice if that was the default behaviour of cygwin.
Would save me from constantly wondering why nothing is happening when
on a newly installed box :-)
Thanks for all the great work, cygwin is a great help in a lot of places!

Granted I know how to alias more to less and I do so for my environment.
But I'm often working in or helping others in Cygwin in their
environment and most people, let's face it, have no environment and fear
the command line so! Or, as is the current case with my client, have a
generic user that is used for things like building and we go about
setting up Cygwin on multiple build machines but we end up with plain
installs with no environment and no aliasing of more -> less. Having to
run around to groups of machines further configuring things like these
often used aliases is a pain. And every time a new build machine is spun
up and Cygwin installed (via a .cmd file I cooked up) the alias is
missing on that new machine. It would be nice if this alias was a
default for Cygwin.
(Yes I know I can change my "package" to do customizations after
installing Cygwin but I have not yet had the time to further enhance my
"Cygwin Install" package...)
