Actually, the preferred user experience would be to: 1. Start in Category view 2. Select whatever packages to install/remove/etc. 3. Click "Next" 4. Have the Pending view show up in order to review whatever is going to be installed. 5. Have the option to Approve / Cancel / Go Back This way, the Pending view is shown at the right moment (after setup instead of before) so there's no need to remember to manually do that. Personally I don't use the setup program too often so I don't think I'll remember to do that each time, especially when most setup programs will show you a final summary with the list of files/packages that would be installed and the amount of required disk space - prior to installing the software - and will also wait for confirmation (even text-based installers like apt-get, for example, behave like that). -- Problem reports: http://cygwin.com/problems.html FAQ: http://cygwin.com/faq/ Documentation: http://cygwin.com/docs.html Unsubscribe info: http://cygwin.com/ml/#unsubscribe-simple
