    Removing features to streamline Windows is no easy task. Microsoft's casual threat to remove Paint highlights the frustrating dynamic of progress versus our collective nostalgia for simpler times.
    Earlier this week, Microsoft released a list of features being deprecated in the forthcoming Fall Creators Update for Windows 10. Depreciation is a weird word for non-techies that means "usable but regarded as obsolete" with no further development. While it is not to say a feature is necessarily removed, it implies that at some point it will be.
    Microsoft Paint was put on that death list with new Paint 3D app positioned as a suitable replacement. Immediately, tech media and pop culture sites jumped on the bandwagon of lamenting its future obsolescence. Microsoft eventually reversed its position with a modern twist (more on that below).
    While humorous, Paint-gate demonstrates the problem that all tech companies have with a successful product that spans decades.
