Gygwin setup for Debianistas

An on-going log of the tweeks needed to make Cygwin more intuitive to those of use who use Debian based systems when given a choice.

cygwin is not Ubuntu, you may have noticed :)

Allow customisation

To end of /etc/profile add

. $HOME/.bashrc

A little welcome

Add to your .bashrc

if [[ $(uname -o) == Cygwin ]]
echo "Usable Windows"
echo `uname -a`

Simplicity rules

To the Cygwin specific block created above add

alias more=less
