False alarm: Microsoft Paint is not dead

Yesterday, netizens took to the Internet to mourn the possible death of MS Paint through series of art works as a tribute to the beloved 32-year-old Windows application. Patrons took to their social media to commemorate the application that has been dubbed “deprecated” or “not in active development.” Thus said to be absent in the coming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, along with apps like Outlook Express, Reading List, and Reader app.

Or so they thought. 

Just this morning, it seems that prayers have been answered because in response to the outcries following the rumors, Microsoft has assured MS Paint fans that the app will soon be available at the Windows Store to download for free. Although, it still won’t be part of the new update—as it will be replaced by a more superior version of it, called Paint 3D—at least we know that MS Paint is not dead.
