Why is the nano text editor soo ugly??

    Because it's probably older than you and was made to work almost anywhere (like Vim and many other programs).

    No everything can use 600MB RAM to display one line of text.

    It was made to be a libre version of the University of Washington's pico, and successfully looks almost exactly like it. It's intended to be intuitive. But I agree it's not attractive.
