Windows

Microsoft has announced - through a boring table, because Microsoft - that MS Paint has been deprecated. This means that it will soon be removed from Windows completely, superseded - supposedly - by their new Paint 3D.

When Microsoft Paint will officially be removed from Windows has yet to be confirmed, while a precise date for the release of the Windows 10 Autumn Creators Update is equally up in the air. Whether, like Clippy, Windows users will celebrate or decry Paint's removal, it will be a moment in the history of Windows as one of its longest-standing apps is put out to pasture.

To be honest, I don't quite understand why you'd use Paint for anything since Paint.NET is far more capable and also free.

Sure, install a new OS just to get a clone of a simple paint app..

No, he didn't say that. He said install the ReactOS versions, they should run on any MS o/s just as they do on ReactOS.

Defeats the purpose. As mentioned above, one of main advantages of MS Pain is that it is present on absolutely all Windows systems by default. If you have to install something, it's entirely different story and use-case.

Any version of Windows that allows you to run Win32 apps. It's most, but not any.
