While you younger folks may not have had this experience, some of us do remember using MS Paint quite a bit — especially when there was no internet and we spent hours just doodling and trying to create works of art. Microsoft’s MS Paint was truly awful, and yet people enjoyed using it to pass the time. It was either that or the classic “Space Cadet” pinball game.
But now Microsoft has announced that they are most likely going to kill MS Paint forever. And while you can’t blame them since most people these days use Photoshop and other way better programs, folks on Twitter gathered to say their goodbyes.
Check it out below, folks.
