Microsoft considering to remove Paint from future versions of Windows 10

The Register reports Microsoft is deleting several features from its Windows 10 Fall Update. Probably the most notable news here is that Microsoft has marked Paint as "deprecated". This means the graphics app is no longer in active development and might be removed in future releases. Users are recommended to switch to the newer Paint3D app, but there are also other great free alternatives like Paint.net.

Here's a look at other things on Windows 10 Fall Update's chopping block:
Less likely to be mourned are the likely demise of IIS 6 Management Compatibility and IIS Digest Authentication. TLS RC4 Ciphers are also deprecated in the imminent release, as is Windows PowerShell 2.0. Replacements have been scheduled for Trusted Platform Module (TPM): TPM.msc and TPM Remote Management.

Interestingly, Microsoft's also hanging the axe over its System Image Backup (SIB) Solution, advising that it's time to “use full-disk backup solutions from other vendors.”

Definitely removed from the Update is Outlook Express, the Reader app (integrated into Edge, not entirely dead) and Screen Saver functionality in Themes. Syskey.exe goes, replaced by BitLocker because it's not secure.
Windows 10 Fall Update is expected in October 2017.
