Microsoft is killing legendary Paint after 32 years – Telegraph.co.uk
Microsoft is finally killing off its legendary Paint program after more than three decades.
The software giant announced it will drop support for the popular drawing app in its upcoming Windows 10 update.
It marked Paint as “deprecated” in a list of apps and features that may be removed from the software, meaning the app is “not in active development and might be removed in future releases”.
Microsoft Paint has been a staple of the Windows operating system for 32 years and has been installed with every version since 1985. The tool lets users easily copy and paste, crop and colour images, or simply doodle and create drawings.
As of last year, Paint was still used by 100 million people a month, according to Microsoft.
