Microsoft is planning to kill off Paint after 32 years
« on: July 24, 2017, 06:45:41 PM »
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.

Now Microsoft has announced that, alongside Outlook Express, Reader app and Reading list, Microsoft Paint has been signalled for death having been added to the “features that are removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update” list.

rather than kill it, why not find ways on how they can improve it?

i think the question raised by MS staff that led them to decide on killing it is:

"what do people really do with MS Paint nowadays?"

kung wala na kasing use, syempre ang logical solution is to dump it. ang dami na ngang apps sa android at ios na nasapawan ang capabilities ng MS Paint e. sana di ba itaas man lang nila yung kakayanan ni MS Paint.
