Default Windows 7 MS Paint on Windows XP?

Is it possible to get MS Paint that is on Windows 7 to work in Windows XP? It has some minor updates that would be very useful for me.

Are there any "sources" for this? I'm an MS Paint fanboy.

PC: AMD Phenom 9950 2.6ghz Quad Core, ATI Radeon HD 5770, 8gb DDR2 RAM
Phone: Apple iPhone 5s 64gb (jailbroken)
Handheld Games: Nintendo 3DS XL, Tapwave Zodiac 2, GamePark Holdings GP2X F100

I don't think anyone has directly ported it, but you can run it in WINE on debian, so here is how you can do this. Run parralells, or any other virtual machine software, and install debian on it, install WINE, then download and configure Paint (google a bit and you can find it) then you have it.

Or you could always try an alternative such as paint.NET. Gimp is epic.
