No works in Windows 7

Nor was it included in previous OS offerings. Such may have been included with PCs by some manufacturer. About the closest you get with the bare OS is Wordpad which is a very simple word processor that some people do just fine with. Works is part of a basic office suite and sold separately.

Pretty much none

Pretty much none. Windows is an operating system, not an office suite. As stated, you get Notepad and WordPad for text editing. If you need more you can buy Works, MS Office, WordPerfect Office, or download the free OpenOffice.

Microsoft website doesn't answer questions clearly

In reply to: about win7

Once again, Microsoft puts up websites with slick graphic images that make marketing Microsoft people drool and congradulate themselves on what pretty webpages they create, but can not construct a website that can easily and quickly answer the simple question: "what programs come with Win 7 basic edition?" According to the Microsoft website, Movie Maker does not come with Win 7 but must be downloaded. I may be wrong, but the website has no list of programs that come with Win 7 basic edition ONLY. Such disappointing "pretty websites" do not make it easier for users of Window products to quickly gleem information, but seem to be constructed to pull in consumers who have little or no experience with computers. The best way to answer the question, "what programs come with Win 7 Basic edition" is to go to a computer store and look at the Start Menu. Microsoft's inability to construct clear websites has made me decide to put-off buying Win7 for a couple years until that product team gets it stuff together.

Depends on the manufacturer ..........

some include other software options, some do not. See support on your manufactures web site for your machines details.

This is a very good third party, free, office suite and can run Windows file extensions (Well it could with Vista).

I am not affiliated with this software maker but have used they're products.

This thread is untracked

more on programs
by TaraS_WinTeam / January 21, 2010 9:25 AM PST

Windows doesn't come with Microsoft Office, you will need to purchase (or download the beta test) separately. As you say, depending on the manufacturer and the version of Windows 7 programs vary, but many are available for free from trusted sources.
