Say Goodbye to An Iconic Computer Program

If you use Microsoft Paint for anything, you're going to need to find something new to use because Microsoft is getting rid of Paint soon.

Paint has been included with Microsoft windows and even DOS for the past 32-years. So why is the software giant going to get rid of it after over three decades?

Officials say that Windows will be offering something better: Paint 3D. The new program does more advanced graphics than the 6-bit stuff Paint would do.

Microsoft Paint was always an excellent application that parents could use to let their children do some basic graphics and drawing.

It's not a horrible loss because today's standards Microsoft Paint is pretty much child's play. It's not good for anything beyond basical doodling.
