$ which nano
/usr/bin/nano

Now, this is far from a new install, but I certain did not add that
myself. So either something pulled nano is as a dependency (doubtful),
or it comes installed in 8.04

By the way, Ubuntu does not come with VIM on a standard install
either. You are using VIM-tiny, which is missing quite a few features,
such as vimtutor:
