Microsoft May Kill Iconic 'Paint' Software, Internet On Nostalgia Trip

Microsoft Paint may not make it in the latest update, ending a 32-year run.

For millennials who have grown up spending hours doodling on Microsoft Paint, some bad news in store: Microsoft is considering killing off the iconic 32-year-old paint feature. The company has announced the latest update to Windows 10 - the Fall Creators Update - where many features will be removed or 'deprecated'. Falling in the 'deprecated' column is Paint, meaning it is 'not in active development and might be removed in future releases.'

The Internet, of course, is aghast at the news of this piece of their childhood being killed off.
 
Microsoft Paint was first introduced in 1985 and has been part of every Microsoft update so far. Despite its limited functionality, it holds a certain amount of nostalgia with Windows users, as is evident from the reactions pouring in.
