ms paint metroTwo years ago when Windows Phone 7 came out, I made a mockup of a "Metro" version of MS Paint. Now Windows 8 is coming out with a whole new Metro-based interface (it's not actually called Metro anymore, I just can't be bothered to look up what they're calling it this week) and guess what?? They're STILL not making a Metro version of Paint! It'll only be available as a "desktop-only" application along with its venerable sidekick Notepad. I crunched the numbers and I determined that the lack of Paint was the #1 reason Windows Phone 7 was a flop, and now it looks like Microsoft is repeating their mistake. Why won't they listen to me!!!
