This looks intriguing, let's see how it fares:
Only, it looks like the news of MS Paint's death have been greatly exaggerated: :P

Thought they were just acknowledging that a program seeing only the most minimum of updates until Vista wasn't really being used by anyone. I also definitely would have taken the opportunity to assert "why freeware matters" yet again.

Thanks :)

I should also add that, if there was this much of a reaction to losing the old program, maybe I don't have a good idea of what people want in a basic image editor. Especially given the many anti-ribbon folks here on the forums, PaintXP is a welcome submission.
