Question

Why would I want to use nano?

Answer

On a regular basis, nano will not substitute our best text editor, but it used to be the text editor before there was a Graphical User Interface, it had stayed as part of the command line for the simplicity, while we could probably use Word for most of our document needs, if we are working already on the command line and we need to make a quick adjustment to one of our files, nano will be one of our best tools for the job, once we get the hang of a few of the commands needed, the time spent updating a text file would be two times as fast in comparison to using any other known text editor.

It might not be a replacement for what we have been using now, but it is a helpful tool when we need to make quick updates or text files.
