Ranjan Kumar, a 27-year-old copywriter, says, "If Paint is going to be discontinued, it really will be the end of one of the most nostalgic parts of our childhood".

"Today, we have seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint", Microsoft said in a blogpost late on Monday.

For those who don't know, Microsoft Paint is a simple computer graphics app that has been included with all versions of Microsoft Windows for the last 32 years.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has released a statement in response to reports that MS Paint is dead. The biggest difference is that Paint will no longer be installed by default with Windows and on work and enterprise machines, it is unlikely that system administrators will allow employees to install apps from the Windows Store in most situations.

In the company's latest announcement, Saunders also notes that Paint 3D, the company's newest graphics app which was released in April and comes with a slew of advanced tools for 3D image making, will include numerous same features-"like photo editing, line and curve tools, and 2D creation"-offered by MS Paint, and is also available for free with the Windows 10 update". But office workers are deprived of their creative sessions once Microsoft would severe MS Paint from Windows as a standard program. Microsoft has been handing out the LinkedIn app in a number of stages using the Windows Store. Although, one of the most biggest changes that Microsoft is going to make is removing off old apps, and replacing them with the new ones. The tech giant said MS Paint will, in fact, still be available. The app will further be available for free with the Windows 10 Creator Update. The company was not the first to add new features to Paint when compared to the competition and the additions came gradually. The company unveiled the drawing app a year ago. So, MS Paint we hope you're yet to have your finest hours. Besides the new feature, the new version will also have photo-editing and 2D creation, line and curve tools.
