Yesterday devastating news hit the world and shocked many of us.

While there is nothing we can do about this it might be for the best. He has suffered long enough from torture and the oppression caused by higher ups and it is time to let him go. 

I know that many of you are like me and tedf devastated with this news

yes paint is getting removed. No longer one will be able to draw amazing high quality battleplans with a few clicks.

Awww.... is it really that bad?  I'm no artist, and I can barely use GIMP and PS, so when I had to make some sprites for a Java programming lesson, I jumped into MS Paint and got crazy with the pixel level drawing.  It worked for those purposes, I didn't care that it looked very retro - in fact, I think it added a "charming" factor to the little "Rancher Bob" guy I made.  MS Paint saved my butt by making it easy for me to whip up a sprite sheet for the Java lesson.  RIP MS Paint!

Anyone got any ideas of what we plebs could use to replace it once MS Paint is history?  Anything that can do that sort of simple pixel level painting?

Just for fun, figured I'd share a nostalgic throwback video & sprite sheet of an animation test from when I got funky with MS Paint:

(if someone wants to actually see this Java programming lesson in action, here's the game at this stage - run the .jar executable to start the "game") https://www.dropbox.com/s/7zt3e6shbe1ej7o/SemJavaGameTEST.rar?dl=0

Macromedia's Freehand 9 was the ducks guts for me if I had to do vector graphics and my other favourite was Fireworks for building buttons, menu bars etc. That was back in 2000 and even back then Photoshop was still the king but a lot it comes down to what you are familiar with using. Once you know your way around a certain graphics program, you tend to be very reluctant to use anything else. We avoided Paint like the plague.
