"It's been awesome to see so much love for our trusty old app", read a blog post. In response to what Microsoft calls the "tremendous outpouring of love" for Paint, which customers showered the internet with on Monday, the company on Tuesday published a blogpost to its official Windows blog indicating that "Paint is here to stay" - in a sense, at least. According to a report by The Guardian, the company is planning to remove the application after the introduction of Microsoft Paint 3D. Her next words were nearly sentimental, as she affirmed Paint's continuing existence: "If there's anything we learned, it's that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans".

With Paint 3D existing alongside Paint, it's not too hard to see why Microsoft is no longer updating the basic program, since the new 3D program offers similar functionality though a very different interface. Is it going away from Windows, yes, but that just means it's a free download in the Microsoft Store. As a result, Microsoft announced today that MS Paint is set to become a free app on the Windows Store. Over 100 million Windows users use the app every month.

As of a year ago, the app still had over 100 million monthly users. "It's been incredible to see so much love for our trusty old app". The company did release an alternative Paint 3D app in April's Windows Creators Update this year, though, it wasn't an exact replacement for the traditional Paint.

The Redmond tech giant gave the cold status of "deprecated" to MS Paint, which received some major wistful reporting yesterday.
