How linux users install a text editor

In honor of the neovim 0.6.0 release, I decided to do a funny skit installing
neovim, and fix up my install script in the process as part of my challenge to
fix up my dotfiles. I ran into one snag where I was not updating the repo that
I cloned. I moved it to the directory I now keep third-party git repos and set
it to update with ansible.

The thing that took me the longest to realize was.... I had a path issue
pointing me to an old install of the appimage over the fresh build, fixed that
up and now we are on 0.7.0 nightly.
