Microsoft Paint gets deprecated

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 This means that it will soon be removed from Windows completely, superseded – supposedly – by their new Paint 3D.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.
