Microsoft drops MS Paint’s support, Rise of Paint 3D.
If you’ve ever used the Windows operating system offered by Microsoft, it is more likely that you would have heard of the application MS Paint. Paint is one of such basic applications which you are expected to know by default.
MS Paint, 1985-2017:
Let’s get old school now. You must have followed this path to access MS Paint on your Windows PC(probably older ones). You would have clicked the Start button present in the lower left-hand corner of the Desktop and follow the path All Programs-> Accessories-> Paint. This path brings in a lot of nostalgic memories to many of us, doesn’t it?
Image editing had its roots from here. People used MS Paint for a multitude of purposes. In fact, Paint sometimes comes handy for handling the work efficiently and in an effective manner.
We know the application is from Microsoft, but Microsoft is not the father of this. Yes, you heard it right. Microsoft licensed the PC Paintbrush app created by ZSoft Corporation. MS Paint initially arrived for the Windows OS with the release of Windows 1.0 in 1985.
Are you a die hard fan of MS Paint and feeling bad? Don’t feel bad. Because Paint 3D is there to hold your back.
The rise of Paint 3D:
Paint 3D was announced on Windows 10 OS at the Microsoft Surface event. So, the next time you update your Windows 10 (Fall Update to be accurate) you would not be seeing the legendary Paint. RIP Paint. You’ll be remembered. 🙁
