Worried about Microsoft killing off 'Paint'? No worry. It's going to be in the Windows Store. Of course you'll have to be using Windows to get it. But now let's get on to that zombie that should of been killed off long ago - Flash. Adobe has finally admitted today that it’s now time to let it go. As a result, Adobe plans to finally retire Flash in 2020. “We will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats,” the company explained. In the meantime, Flash will still be supported on desktop operating systems and web browsers that already integrate it.
As for Microsoft Edge?
<blockquote>
  • Through the end of 2017 and into 2018, Microsoft Edge will continue to ask users for permission to run Flash on most sites the first time the site is visited, and will remember the user’s preference on subsequent visits. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash with no special permissions required during this time.
  • In mid to late 2018, we will update Microsoft Edge to require permission for Flash to be run each session. Internet Explorer will continue to allow Flash for all sites in 2018.
  • In mid to late 2019, we will disable Flash by default in both Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer. Users will be able to re-enable Flash in both browsers. When re-enabled, Microsoft Edge will continue to require approval for Flash on a site-by-site basis.
  • By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.
