  • Microsoft signals end of Paint program

    http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40705466

    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.
    I'm fairly outraged to put it bluntly, my only hope is that 'no longer be developed' means that it won't be dumped and more that they simply realise you can't improve on perfection...

      First - its already is replaced by Paint 3D. And billions of other paint programs, with any of them being better then Paint. Paint is most basic tool, that only masochists use.
      Second - Its going to be availeble as an app, from the app store. So your S/M games can go on.

        Widnows 10 Paint was an outright human rights violation anyways.

            Adobe Systems has said that it plans to phase out its Flash Player plug-in by the end of 2020.

            The technology was once one of the most widely used ways for people to watch video clips and play games online.
            But it also attracted much criticism, particularly as flaws in its code meant it became a popular way for hackers to infect computers
            .

            In recent years, much of its functionality has been offered by the rival HTML5 technology.

            One of HTML5's benefits is that it can be used to make multimedia content available within webpages without requiring users to install and update a dedicated plug-in.

            Decline and fall

            Apple was one of Flash's most vocal critics. The late Steve Jobs once wrote a public letter about its shortcomings, highlighting concerns about its reliability, security and performance.

              Good riddance to flash. It was a stack of shyte and buggy/insecure as hell. Most of the Malware I've seen recently masquerades as Flash updates too.

              Meanwhile. Peoplepower saves MS Paint.
