Enjoy man pages colorized

Hi everyone,

Linux users know that manual pages (aka man pages), is initially black and white.

Yet, we can colorize them with two simple steps: (I use Linux mint/ubuntu here)

-- Open a shell and execute this:
sudo aptitude install most
-- After application is installed successfully, execute the following:
sudo update-alternatives --set pager /usr/bin/most

That is it, now enjoy a beautiful colored man pages..
