Microsoft on Monday announced the end of days for its pioneering Paint application as it focuses on software for 3-D drawing.
Microsoft Paint, formerly known as Paintbrush, was packaged in the first version of Windows back in 1985 and went on to become a phenomenon. It walks buyers through a series of questions, asking how they'll use their new PC, and identifying which features are most important to them.
But now Microsoft could be about to axe the app in its upcoming autumn Windows update. That means it will no longer be "in active development" and may be removed entirely in a future release.
After 32 Years, MS Paint May Be Leaving Windows
For many Windows users, Paint has been that one utility which lives on their machines and comes to their rescue whenever required. Obviously the internet is not happy with the news, and has already started mourning the loss of our favourite childhood software.
Microsoft Paint is, of course, the almost legendary graphics editing program that's undoubtedly responsible for countless bad doodles and amateurish artistic creations.
A date hasn't been set for its demise, and the release of the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update is also unknown.
Later versions of Windows allowed Paint users to save images in JPEG, GIF and PNG formats.
