While this application allows git commit and command-line text editing, users have the option to install Nano by typing the command dnf install nano. However, in the upcoming Fedora 33, users will be able to use the Nano without having to installation.

Like many other changes to the new operating system, the change of the default editor has also been requested by them users. According to them, the Nano text editor is simpler and its management does not require much knowledge.
