10ALBANY, NY - March 22, 2001 - The GNU nano development team
11today released version 1.0 of their flagship (and only) product, the
12GNU nano text editor. GNU nano brings a friendly and intuitive editing
13environment to users of Unix(1)-like operating systems.
14 "We have worked very hard to provide a solid and easy to use
15editor for both the casual and power user. With version 1.0, users
16can expect a completely bug free and emotionally fulfilling text editing
17experience (2)," blurts Chris Allegretta, program maintainer. "GNU nano
18follows in the software industry's rich tradition of 'point-zero' releases
19which contain absolutely no bugs whatsoever."
20 GNU nano has won the highly coveted "Best Pico clone whose name
21begins with 'n' and ends with 'o'" award two years in a row. More
22fictional awards are expected to be awarded soon.
