Like A Hero, MS Paint Makes A Miraculous Return From The Jaws Of Death

| Published on July 26, 2017

Every 80s and 90s child know what Microsoft Paint is. In fact, I can say that if you have used this once in your life you were awesome! Released with the very first version of Windows 1.0 in 1985 it is one of the basic graphic editing programs.

In April with Microsoft’s Window 10 update called the Autumn (or Fall in the US) Creators Update, brings in a lot of new features. And it was rumored that one program that would suffer the update wrath is none other than MS Paint!

MS Paint was never one of the most capable apps and was limited to the bitmap (BMP) and PCX formats until 1998. But it was all known for scribbling images or rather later one could save files in JPG format.

Microsoft will actually announce a new 3D Paint program which helps to make 3D feature images with effective tools and also support creating certain other 2D images too. It is nothing similar to MS Paint.

Immediately came in the emotional outpour for one of the childhood memories and people went gaga over the news. But next day itself Microsoft released the news that the program would be available in Windows Store for free. That exactly what happens in a film plot. Or rather you remember how The Undertaker in childhood days used to die several times and make a comeback. Well, something similar!

Megan Saunders, general manager of 3D at Microsoft, said

“Today, we’ve seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint. MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free.”

Fans started being joyous but also pointed out the fact that though the app never suffered a sudden death but also never promises to get further any kind of updates.

Don’t worry and continue your crappy image creations with your favorite app as much as you want!
