R.I.P. Microsoft paint
« on: July 25, 2017, 02:30:47 AM »
Looks like Bill Gates will finally kill off the paint program.

Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update, called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, will bring a variety of new features. But one long-standing stalwart of the Windows experience has been put on the chopping block: Microsoft Paint.

First released with the very first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985, Paint in its various guises would be one of the first graphics editors used by many and became a core part of Windows. Starting life as a 1-bit monochrome licensed version of ZSoft’s PC Paintbrush, it wasn’t until Windows 98 that Paint could save in JPEG.

With the Windows 10 Creators Update, released in April, Microsoft introduced the new Paint 3D, which is installed alongside traditional Paint and features 3D image making tools as well as some basic 2D image editing. But it is not an update to original Paint and doesn’t behave like it.

Is that for real? I love to use MS Paint when I'm bored. This is so sad.  :'(

Today, we’ve seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint. If there’s anything we learned, it’s that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans. It’s been amazing to see so much love for our trusty old app. Amidst today’s commentary around MS Paint we wanted to take this opportunity to set the record straight, clear up some confusion and share some good news:

MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows

They're replacing Paint with Paint 3D.  It looks like a modern form of Photoshop/Blender.  Which just goes hand in hand with Microsoft up to their old evil ways, with the 3E law.  Embrace, expand, extinguish.  But I doubt people are going to be switching over from the best programs on the market to Paint 3D.  Especially since it's apparently clunky and hard to use with a mouse and keyboard (you know, the primary input types for the PC).
