MS Paint discontinued? Microsoft answers concerns

A sign marks the Microsoft office in Cambridge Massachusetts

Microsoft has not revealed the date when it will remove Paint from Windows but the addition in the list has confirmed that the demise of paint is inevitable.

The company further said: "Paint 3D - the new app for creativity, also available for free with the Windows 10 Creators Update, will continue to get new feature updates".

"Amidst today's commentary around MS Paint we wanted to take this opportunity to set the record straight, clear up some confusion and share some good news".

Microsoft Paint, the image-editing program which helped a generation with their computer art, may begin to be erased later this year.

Rivernorth Capital Management Llc increased Blackrock Ltd Duration Inc T (BLW) stake by 120.33% reported in 2016Q4 SEC filing. This represents a $0.68 annualized dividend and a dividend yield of 1.94%. 31 funds opened positions while 67 raised stakes.

Saunders didn't say when Paint would be transitioned over to a Store app, nor did she mention whether it would still be developed-or just preserved in amber. But it is not an update to original Paint and doesn't behave like it.

One thing to note here is that Microsoft Paint is not the only app that is being killed off.

As of previous year, the app still had over 100 million monthly users. A short film about those drawings won several awards after its 2013 release, and was even used as part of a commercial by Microsoft.

"It made me sad", Hines tells Rafi Letzter of Inverse about the end of Microsoft Paint, "especially for younger kids, because it is such a fun training ground for future digital artists".

A number of reports yesterday claimed that Microsoft was set to can its cult graphics program, citing a Microsoft blog that listed which Windows 10 features will be removed in the operating system's autumn update.

But many will mourn the loss of Paint because of its simplicity, rather than despite it, and soon, Paint's low-resolution.JPEG images will truly become artefacts of the digital past.

Stand down, everyone: Microsoft Paint isn't going away after all.
