PC Paint 1.00A

PC Paint, from Mouse Systems Corporation, is a Macintosh MacPaint-like paint program for the PC. It was often bundled with Mouse Systems mice. Despite the similar sounding name and appearance, it is NOT related to Microsoft/ZSoft PC Paintbrush.

Mouse Systems Mice and PC Paint came to market prior to Microsoft, and were direct competition. When PC Paint was released, Microsoft did not yet have a similar paint program to bundle with their mice, so they obtained ZSoft PC Paintbrush as their own Mac Paint clone.

For best results, use this program with a video card or emulator that supports CGA pallets.
