Fedora plans to add a Nano text editor to the default Fedora Workstation installation as a complement to Vi, but its stakeholders plan to submit a system-wide proposal that would change the default installed editor from ViNano.

Fedora plans to change the default text editor from Vi to Nano

Fedora Workstation style adds the Nano text editor to spin by default without replacing it with the default terminal-based text editor, which is currently owned by Vi. At a recent Fedora workstation meeting, they avoided trying to change only the default text editor for Fedora workstations, instead releasing system-wide recommendations to use it for all Fedora rotations. The plan has been confirmed in the Workstation WG meeting minutes.

If the Fedora 32 release is approved by the Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee, changes to the default text editor may be released in the spring.
