Mi­crosoft Paint brushed aside

Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

Mi­crosoft on Mon­day an­nounced the end of days for its pi­o­neer­ing Paint ap­pli­ca­tion as it fo­cuses on soft­ware for 3-D draw­ing.

Paint draw­ing and im­age pro­cess­ing soft­ware that made its de­but in 1985 with the Windows op­er­at­ing sys­tem was among the ap­pli­ca­tions listed as “re­moved or dep­re­cated” in a Windows 10 Fall Cre­ators Up­date set for re­lease later this year. Fea­tures or func­tions on the list “are not in ac­tive de­vel­op­ment and might be re­moved in fu­ture re­leases,” ac­cord­ing to the US tech­nol­ogy com­pany. For decades, Paint was among ap­pli­ca­tions in­stalled by de­fault on Win­dowspow­ered per­sonal com­put­ers and drew a strong fol­low­ing. Fans of the ap­pli­ca­tion will be able to take so­lace in a Paint 3-D ver­sion launched early this year.— AFP
