Random review:
“Somehow, the word about TuxPaint spread throughout our community. Older elementary school students started exploring it in our computer center. A few days later, a middle school boy asked how he could use TuxPaint on his computer. This is a boy who has spent hundreds of hours playing first-person shooting games.” — Takoma Park Maryland Library, May 2012

Tux Paint ZIP File for Windows95/98/ME

This version of Tux Paint for Windows is a plain ZIP archive (extractable with '7-Zip' or other tools), which doesn't install into your system, but instead runs from within its own folder.

Note: If you have a newer version of Windows (XP, 2000, Vista, etc.), then you should download the ZIP version for newer Windows.

It is meant those who would prefer not to download an installer .exe program.

This is also known as a "Portable" version.
