Would love to see paint.net on the Windows 10 Store.  Check it out, would be a great distro platform for a great app.

Adding to this, will PDN run on Windows 10 anyway? I am hoping to upgrade but don't want to lose one of my most used applications.

Yes, Paint.NET works fine on Windows 10.

 

The upcoming 4.0.6 will fix some styling and aesthetic stuff, but it will work just fine before that too.

I'd like to support this request since W10 Anniversary has bridge to bring classic apps to windows store.
Also this update has API to support application extensions distribution via Store.

I'd love to see it on the Windows Store. I'm so sick of downloading and running installers and custom update methods.

Microsoft released the Desktop App Converter to publish Win32 and .Net desktop applications on the Windows Store without the need of converting to UWP.

I wouldn't mind if it'd be offered at a reasonable price in the Store, to offset the extra work and the (maybe necessary) removal of the donation button, while keeping the free version on the website for those who don't want to or cannot pay for it (yet).

I'm hoping to do this at some point, it's just in the queue along with a million other things :)

You got news for this? I'm patiently waiting for every developer out there to support Windows Store and you seem like an open-minded one :)

I'm also want to see paint.net in the Windows Store. And if there is any interest maybe I can help :)
 
I have just published a desktop application in the Windows Store. Instead of using the Desktop App Converter I did everything manually. It's not hard to do this but it takes to time to get all details right. The result is a file contain a manifest, tiles, references to dependencies and all files that needs to be installed. 
 
Now I think it should be quite easy to adapt this to paint.net. In principle, I just need to change some strings and change which files that needs to be installed. Then I can send everything to you so you have a good starting point. This assumes that the current installer doesn't do any crazy things in the system :).
