We compared classic Paint to Paint 3D back in 2016 and concluded that Paint 3D was not a 1:1 alternative for Paint. Especially customers who beloved the velocity of the traditional Paint would not really feel at house in Paint 3D. Paint 3D did provide some options that traditional Paint does not, although.
