#2426 F33 System-Wide Change: Make nano the default editor
Closed: Accepted a month ago by churchyard. Opened a month ago by bcotton.

Let's make Fedora more approachable, by having a default editor that doesn't require specialist knowledge to use.


What about micro? It seems to be even better.

This change is long overdue, IMHO. nano is a good default editor for Fedora.

What about micro? It seems to be even better.

It's pretty fat to install, and we struggle to meet the boundaries for the ISO as it currently stands. Also, we already have nano preinstalled, and there's a wealth of existing "practice" from other distros that default to GNU nano already (e.g. the entire Debian family).

I am personally very fond of micro, but I think nano is more conservative default. That's also what the change owners proposed and I am +1 to that.

Next time we can change it to ed.

OK, the size argument is reasonable.
