MS Paint doesn't suck. If people had any patience, you could do everything in paint that you could do in any other program (pixel art wise-obviously it's no photoshop).

Using MS Paint as opposed to any program with hotkeys is like putting your brushes and paints on the other side of the room while you paint. It's pointlessly and painfully slow. ???

Since when do artists care about how quickly they can finish their art? Paint is less efficient, yes, but it's just as good as anything else for less-than-professionals like me. Come on, we're talking about pixel art. Modern is bad, less is more, making as much as you can with as little as you can, and so on.

Oh, alright, Paint is a bad program, but it doesn't suck!

I think they care a lot when they have to meet a deadline.

Paint for Windows Vista doesn't look too bad at all..

I've always used paint, but I don't use it with everything, cus paint does have noticable restrictions. You can't argue with that, however much you love it.

I know the newer paint itsn't specialised to pixelers as Graphics Gale might be, but im sure it has everything the original did.

"Modern is bad" - umm...care to explain?

also, i must say i agree that MSpaint sucks, and Pawige nailed it with his comparisson.  Also, most people do care about how quickly they can finish their art, because tedious grind that doesnt yield superior results leads to frustration and then to stagnation.  patience is a great thing, especially when it pays off, but with MS paint, it just doesn't.  ms paint simply is not a good tool unless you are a shithead like matthew barney and think that needless and self-inflicted restraint is art, regardless of the end product.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.
