MS Paint Will Be Dead Soon,Microsoft Ending Support


For many Windows users, Paint has been that one utility which lives on their machines and comes to their rescue whenever required.
In a sad, and expected, turn of events Microsoft might erase the dinosaur of image editing tools
from its existence, probably with the Fall Creators Update arriving later this year.
The word ‘expected’ could be used as Redmond has already prepared a better and feature rich Paint 3D to replace its predecessor.
Paint app wasn’t originally developed by Microsoft, it was a licensed version of the PC Paintbrush app created by ZSoft Corporation. It first arrived for the Windows OS with the release of Windows 1.0 in 1985.
There might have been two probable reasons that Microsoft Paint tasted success. First, it comes bundled with almost every Windows version, and second, editing images using Paint is like a child’s play.
MS Paint has been a great option for those amateur image editing sessions which don’t require Photoshop expertise or to be used by a man for ten years and create a masterpiece. Here is a great image created by Pat Hines using MS Paint:
