    I like this app. The difference from what is on the video demonstration is the smart feature which is not in the one uploaded online.

    I am loving this new Paint already!

    I hadn't thought anybody was using that primitive tool when there's far more capable freeware available. But maybe now with the 3D, it may just become usable for that particular purpose, though I doubt about its usability for anything else.

    But it's an APP, must be far better than the normal program. What's next? Trashcan APP? :death:

    Sooner or later they will replace the notepad (which is practically unchanged since win3.xx) with something more... simplified :D

    I understand your sarcasm. But, I don't think it has anything do to stop people from using Photoshop. That is not even the intention of Microsoft by revamping the old Paint tool. It is more of a robust version of the Microsoft Paint we all come to love and used to.

    No one loves Paint today. It was a marvel in '93 or so, but surely not today.

    But after 20 years or so I would expect something better as replacement, not something worse.

    Obviously Photoshop was named as a joke, but something like paint.net could be bundled w/o hurting the MS finances.

    I do love Paint and I use it extensively on resizing and editing profile images, etc. Twenty years ago is a long time and it has possibly changed a lot since then.

    On the contrary to your replacement insinuation I disagree to say the new Paint is just exceptional in its tools(from 3D to touch features), most especially, for those using digital pen and I cannot over-emphasized the benefits they would get from it - that includes those who have Surface Tab or Book. I have tried it on touch and it worked pretty well.

    However, this is going to be a better replacement for the old Paint in Windows 10.

    Instead of bothering with old paint, they should have added a few more editing functions to the new Photos app, like resizing and converting to other formats. It would then double its usability.
