Microsoft is not ditching Paint

Microsoft is not ditching Paint”

At the moment, it appears that this update is only for PCs and phones in the Release Preview Ring, bumping the latest version of the Windows Store to version 11701.1000.80, and bringing several UI improvements to the store experience on both desktop and mobile.

The reversal came after word spread July 24 that Microsoft planned to push Paint out of its software picture, putting it on a list of "deprecated" features that would be included in the company's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, set to be released this fall.

But Microsoft Paint is line an old shoe (I wear those too, by the way), and while no one will ever mistake it for Photoshop, Microsoft found out this week that it had vastly underestimated the program's fan base before making the announcement that Paint was being put out to pasture.

Earlier this month Microsoft revealed in a support article that its marking its MSPaint.exe as "depreciated" in the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Wallace also told NPR that there is no "concrete evidence" that Wheeler was misquoted by Zimmerman. Together, they investigated the death of Seth Rich , a DNC staffer who was murdered July 10, 2016.

The program was released in 1985 with the first version of Windows 1.0.

Some other programs in the list also faced the same cut-down, along with the Outlook Express email client, which will be switched with the built-in Mail app, as well as the Reader application, which now will be joined with Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft is going to introduce #Paint 3D, where you can design and work on three-dimensional objects. It has been a favourite piece of app for many in the 90s.

"Today, we've seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint", wrote Megan Saunders, general manager of 3D at Microsoft in a blog post.

Kin of abducted Indians in Mosul shaken with Sushma's statement in parliament
The government, Ms Swaraj said, has been in touch with countries of the region, including Turkey, which can help India in the case.

Microsoft is also asking users to keep returning feedback about the Paint 3D app.

I suppose, if you're a developer, that's part of the problem. They want what they're comfortable with.

This seems like a good compromise, though. However, we will have to wait and watch whether the love for MS Paint would over power the company's decision of taking it down! Are you a techie who knows how to write?
