Microsoft might be about to make a ton of people mad with their new PC hardware support policy

Microsoft could be on the verge of scrapping its Paint app after 32 years.

Microsoft will drop support for EMET for all versions of Windows in July 2018, and has been urging customers to upgrade to Windows 10, which features many of EMET's exploit mitigations.

Microsoft now has not offered a precise date for the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, but most users expect it to arrive in October.

The iconic Paint application has landed on Microsoft's list of "deprecated" features for future software releases.

Paint has been part of Windows since 1985, where it began life as a licenced version of ZSoft's PC Paintbrush.

No exact date has been given for when Microsoft Paint will be removed or when the new fall update will go live.

Say goodbye to Microsoft Paint?

British Open: First major title slips away from Matt Kuchar
Only 23 years old, Spieth already has two major championship titles, and was heavily favored to win entering Sunday's final round. After a roller-coaster back nine when he held it all together in the most trying of circumstances, daddy's emotions also showed.

Windows released an updated spinoff of its original program called Paint 3D previous year, which incorporated elements of the original program combined with another program 3D Builder.

It's not alone in being deleted from Windows 10.

And we can nearly guarantee that although Paint is no longer being developed, even if it is removed from Windows by default, it will be available to download as freeware within about ten minutes. However, these systems are no longer supported by Intel (End of Interactive Support), and without the necessary driver support, they may be incapable of moving to the Windows 10 Creators Update without a potential performance impact.

Other functions and features making way in either category are screensaver functionality in Themes, and the 3D Builder app.

In Paint's stead, Microsoft is offering its new version of the software, the Paint 3D app.

So with Microsoft Paint gone, what can you do in Paint 3D?
