Outpour of love from users saves Microsoft Paint's demise

After 32 Years, Microsoft Is Killing Off Paint For Good

Yesterday, Microsoft published an official list of all the Windows features that are being removed or deprecated with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Microsoft has confirmed it's not killing the 32-year old Paint app after all.

Fear not Microsoft Paint fans, the beloved, 32-year-old user-friendly art program isn't going anywhere. "It's been incredible to see so much love for our trusty old app", the company said in a blog following the internet outcry.

The statement comes from Megan Saunders, the General Manager of 3D for Everyone Initiative and Windows Experiences at Microsoft, in a blog post.

Of the many features that Microsoft Windows software has introduced to the human race, Paint holds a special place in most people's hearts - its simple-yet-captivating interface has brought to life the imagination of many aam artists around the globe.

The sentiment represented at the convention was that the citizens of this country should realise the importance of 26 July - Martyr's day.

That means you can't install it by default with Windows. Paint 3D - the new app for creativity, also available for free with the Windows 10 Creators Update, will continue to get new feature updates. And since it's unlikely that system administrators of enterprise networks will allow their constituents to download apps from the Windows Store, those around the office are more than likely going to be out of luck - though PC users at home will still have access to Paint.

"So, thanks for all the MS Paint love, keep the feedback coming via the Paint 3D app, and keep creating!".

The Windows 10 Creators Update is set to launch this Autumn, and could be released as early as September.

Microsoft executive Megan Saunders introduces Paint 3D at a Microsoft news conference October 26, 2016 in NY. It removed its 3D Builder app for the fall update and encouraged users to use Paint 3D instead. As the last remaining drawing application designed for mouse-only input, Paint is definitely one of a kind, valued for its relative simplicity.
