Taking Paint's place in the start menu (if not in our hearts) is the new Paint 3D which, Microsoft was keen to point out in its blog, has a lot of the functionality of the old app.

The program, first released in 1985 with the first version of Windows 1.0, was said to be slated for removal in the Windows 10 Fall Creators update, The Guardian reported on Monday.

While you younger folks may not have had this experience, some of us do remember using MS Paint quite a bit - especially when there was no internet and we spent hours just doodling and trying to create works of art. Microsoft's MS Paint was truly terrible, and yet people enjoyed using it to pass the time. According to reports, Microsoft has announced that the Paint will live on after users from all across the world urged the company not to discontinue its 32-year-old program.

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

"So, thanks for all the MS Paint love, keep the feedback coming via the Paint 3D app, and keep creating!". The program has always included only pretty basic controls, with the option to actually save a JPEG not arriving until more than ten years after the program launched, with Windows 98. The company is planning to add Paint to the Windows Store, allowing users to download it on-demand. "It's been unbelievable to see so much love for our trusty old app", the company said in a blog following the internet outcry. The company unveiled the drawing app previous year. The new Paint 3D app is also designed from grounds up taking into account the changes the computing industry itself has evolved into off late.

The next generation Paint 3D is designed for 3D image-making and is expected to be released in April next year. There is a possibility of Microsoft Paint to be a part of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, but Microsoft will not keenly update this software.
