“Today, we’ve seen an incredible outpouring of support and nostalgia around MS Paint. If there’s anything we learned, it’s that after 32 years, MS Paint has a lot of fans. It’s been amazing to see so much love for our trusty old app,” Megan Saunders, a general manager at Microsoft, wrote in a blog post on Monday.
The Microsoft Company added,” MS Paint is here to stay, it will just have a new home soon, in the Windows Store where it will be available for free.
