Microsoft Paint is dead; long live Microsoft Paint

After 32 Years Microsoft Is Killing Off Paint For Good

"It's been fantastic to see so much love for our trusty old app", said Megan Saunders, a general manager at Microsoft, in a blog post on Monday.

But the outpour online for this software was so strong that Microsoft clarified the changes in a blog post.

Such a move seems logical though given that Microsoft has already introduced the Paint 3D app early this year and is created to come across as a more modern replacement of the Paint.

Following an outcry from fans on Monday, Microsoft said the app will soon land in the Windows Store for free.

Microsoft had previously classified the Paint app as "deprecated" within the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, meaning Microsoft would officially cease development on it, and it could be removed from the OS either with the release of the FCU or in the future.

Saunders also notes that the tech company has another app that can be used in place of MS Paint. But because MS Paint will no longer be a default core part of Windows, it may not be the same. "It's been wonderful to see so much love for our trusty old app". It is in fact going to be available for free on the Windows Store.

But Saunders is still pushing Paint 3D that would come with Windows 10 Creators Update.

Microsoft executive Megan Saunders introduces Paint 3D at a Microsoft news conference October 26, 2016 in NY.

Fans of Microsoft's long-standing Paint program are suddenly feeling very blue. As the last remaining drawing application designed for mouse-only input, Paint is definitely one of a kind, valued for its relative simplicity.

The next generation Paint 3D is designed for 3D image-making and is expected to be released in April next year. And the latest update for Windows 10, which is called Autumn (or Fall), will be comprising of a whole new features, being updated for the users.
