MacPaint, QuickDraw code goes to Computer History Museum

Tech underlies modern art programs

Apple has donated two related pieces of software -- MacPaint and QuickDraw -- to the Computer History Museum, located in Mountain View, California. MacPaint was launched with the original Macintosh in 1984, and is often considered the archetype for modern illustration programs, having introduced concepts like paint buckets and lasso selection. Another novelty was creating images that could be used in other apps.
