    Job for the boys

    The new Paint will be a Universal Windows App, so will run on almost anything with Windows.

    So it can paint my house?

      UWA will be as successful as Silverlight.

    Hardware bump

    Looks like we're going to need new hardware again.

    The rumoured minimum spec is Windows 10, 32 core CPU running at 24THz, 1Tb RAM, Direct-X 46.9.005 compatible video card, an Office 345 subscription and a blunt crayon.

      Just to make sure I spec the system correctly, what color crayon?

        Death-screen blue, of course...

    Feel the innovation .. At last, we'll be able to have a tablet and draw pictures on it with a virtual pencil. The business opportunities are mind blowing.

    Only problem is that the competition is an etch-a-sketch that was designed in the 50's

    3D Paint -> 3D Print

    This ties in with their new line of 3D Printers.

    Draw whatever you like, in 3D Paint, and then hit 3D Print.

    Microsoft will make a fortune selling overpriced cartridges of Flying Car paste.

    I get it now. The whole point of flattening the UI was so people could tell which was the content and which the program. Sheer brilliance! They've finally shrugged off the last vestiges of MS BOB and flipped the whole concept around. Bravo!
