Microsoft signals end of Paint program
Microsoft's graphics program Paint has been included in a list of Windows 10 features that will be either removed or no longer developed. Paint has been part of the Windows operating system since its release in 1985 and is known for its simplicity and basic artistic results. Paint's successor, Paint 3D, will still be available. Welsh YouTuber Chaotic described Paint as "The greatest thing to have ever existed" - perhaps with tongue in cheek. The artist known as Jim'll Paint It uses the program to create artwork on outlandish themes, commissioned by strangers.
