RIP Microsoft Paint

July 24, 2017

Remember Microsoft Paint? The program that came pre-loaded on every Windows computer that let you draw random things? Paint was a staple of my childhood. Any time I had extra time in computer class I always went straight to Paint (or sometimes Oregon Trail. If they had that on that computer.) 

Well, the Paint party might be over. Although not officially confirmed, it is likely that Microsoft will remove Paint with its next update. Granted, Paint is extremely limited in what you can do. It's no photoshop. Its main purpose is nostalgia, and I just like knowing that it's there. And furthermore, Paint still had 100 million monthly users as of last year, so people DO still use it, Microsoft!! 


RIP Paint. Thank you for always being there for me when I didn't feel like paying attention in school. It was much appreciated.
