Why don't replace some old software of windows with newer?

    Some software distributed with Windows are very old, like Notepad and Paint. Why Microsoft don't replace for example Paint with Paint.net (which belogs to Microsoft)??
    In my opinion Microsoft should integrate Paint.net in Vista (although it's too later today)....
    And you? What do you think?

    No, it doesn't belong to Microsoft. But:

    Rick, however, is also against including Paint.NET with Windows. In the Paint.NET FAQ he says:

    Will Paint.NET ever replace Paint in Windows?
    There are no plans to include Paint.NET with Windows. But you can always download it for free from our website. Honestly, it's better that Paint.NET is not integrated in to Windows, because that let's us keep our own design and agenda for everything.
