Microsoft Paint is being discontinued 32 years after first being introduced, much to the chagrin of those who spent hours playing with it as a kid.

This graphics editing program, which has been a childhood favorite since the 1980s, will not be included in Microsoft's new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, The Guardian reported.

However, the silver lining to this for those who have used Microsoft Paint for decades is that the new Windows 10 update, which launches this fall, offers something called Paint 3D.

Paint 3D "features 3D image making tools" but "it is not an update to original Paint and doesn’t behave like it," The Guardian said.

Microsoft Paint is apparently not the only longtime program being killed off by the company: Outlook Express and the Reader program also have been removed from Windows 10.

Twitter users — both sarcastically and seriously — mourned the loss of Microsoft Paint.
