In 1999, when issues with Pico’s licensing developed, Chris Allegretta created TIP in order to create a free software replacement. TIP, which stood for TIP isn’t Pico, was renamed to Nano in 2000 to avoid a conflict with a Unix tool called tip. Nano became part of the GNU project in 2001, and as a result, Nano is sometimes referred to as GNU Nano.
