redmond - It looks somber for one of the oldest graphics computer programs, Microsoft Paint. The Windowsmaker has announced that Paint's development will stop and that it is on the nomination to be completely removed.
For creativity, the Windows Creator Update, which is on the agenda for autumn, is a new game in the form of Paint 3D, but the new drawing program is not a one-on-one successor to Paint. For the time being, Paint still seems to be part of Windows, but it's only the question for how long. Paint gets the same status as Outlook Express and Reader.
For most Windows users, Paint is a familiar face in Windows. The first version of the program dates back to 1985. Paint saw the life light in Windows 1. 0.
