The only reason i ended up caving in to buying a more functional piece of kit was because the built in snip tool is extremely basic, you can't even add text to a snip!!
Snagit has the functionality i need (and more) when i'm writing guides or upping a screenshot to SF. I'm sure people who write guides here will agree that Windows built in tool really isn't up to scratch.
True, Snipping Tool is very basic. For me it works. Snipping tool works seamless with clipboard; I have Photoshop normally almost always open so I just paste the snip and edit / add text and so on.

Try how practical it is: Make a snip, don't save it. Open Paint, press CTRL+V and your snip is ready to be edited.
