A tribute to my old friend...

You may remember it looking something like this:

Now, of course, it is called "Paint", and looks more like this:

It's so unpretentious, has so much character, feels no need to incorporate excess bells and whistles...

...And is so much fun. 

This is me having fun with Paint. :)

But just like John Henry (vs. the steam-powered hammer) the appeal of Paint's simplicity, despite it's relative inefficiency, is hard to explain.

(Meet the steam-powered hammer:)

Yes, I recognize that Photoshop is better, and more powerful, and more effecient, and I do like to use it for most projects.......
