    Yes. It is definitely a shocker and surprise announcement from Microsoft. MS Paint was one of the oldest and evergreen application from Microsoft. It is the tool which is given to most kids to start them working with computers and utilizing their creative skills. I still remember the days of my childhood where I had used this application lot of times to play around. I hope many 90's kids would have done that. Even today, people rely on MS Paint for doing some basic activities. I hope it is in planning stage only. Microsoft should conduct a genuine online poll to know about the customers interest in removing this application. If they had already decided to remove it, then it will be greatly missed by most of the Windows Operating system users.

    Very sorry to learn from this post that Microsoft would remove MS paint from its software and that would be great shocker for the beginners like me who were habituated to this paint which was user friendly and mostly liked and applied by many on daily basis. It is like stealing away the child from the laps of the mother who was getting along with the child with love and affection. I personally feel that there is no necessity for the Microsoft to remove this program as it is not only popular and the people are accustomed to it. They can always introduce a better program, but they should retain it for the sake of users like me,

On seeing the love of people, today Microsoft has announced that it will save MS-Paint by giving a home at the Windows store. MS-Paint will be removed from the future releases of windows version and will not be available in default with the windows machines, but it can be downloaded for free from the windows store. This announcement of Microsoft is highly appreciable.
