Microsoft has released a statement that they will be removing Microsoft Paint once they roll out the new Windows 10 upgrade in autumn this year (https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/jul/24/microsoft-paint-kill-off-after-32-years-graphics-editing-program - I am here to ask Microsoft to reconsider and let Microsoft Paint live!!!!

Microsoft Paint plays a huge factor in people's lives - it may seem menial to still be using Microsoft Paint in 2017, but I still use it and I use it well.

For most of my life I have used Microsoft Paint to help me with homework, school projects and even now nearing my 30s I still use it from time to time to help me with personal documents and even for work. I am not tech savvy nor am I creative enough to be using Photoshop and other software/applications that would do the same job as Microsoft Paint, so having something as simple and as user friendly as Microsoft Paint has helped me a lot! Being able to use Microsoft Paint (drawing, creating maps/diagrams, etc) brings out a sense of pride in myself for being able to accomplish such tasks, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who feels this way.

I have yet to compile my resources for this petition (because I am at work when this news broke out!), but please look through this collection of drawings that have been done on Microsoft Paint -

P.S. Even if I were really good at Photoshop et al, I would still go back to my roots and use Microsoft Paint!
