Microsoft has announced that it is considering removing the iconic 32-year-old paint feature from Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The company announced that many features will be removed or 'deprecated'. Paint is in the 'deprecated' list, it means the software will not be in ‘active development and might be removed in future releases.'
As soon as the news broke, Internet went into a nostalgic tizzy and people went into overdrive paying their tribute in most creative manner. While some lamented that it took away a part of their childhood, others were just too sad and were busy doodling on the simple software.

I remember the days of boredom & trying to cover the blank White canvas on MS paint with the smallest sized paint brush😂— Ali (@RoyMustang786) July 24, 2017
Well good news is Windows have worked on Paint and come out with a more up-to-date version called Paint 3D. Take a look, you’ll fall in love with this too.
Time to say goodbye to the image editing tool that helped a generation with their computer art and school work. RIP Paint, we will miss you.
