Windows 7: OK, Who took out the games?

OK, Who took out the games?

So I just installed my Windows 7 Pro 64bit and discovered that there are no "standard" little games included. What happened to the card game, chess and the others??? Bummer. Should I be pissed or is there something I missed?

I think they are only included in the Ultimate edition; but you can download them from MS.

SleeStak is correct. I think you go to Control Panel > Programs > Windows Components to enable the games

Edit: ooops Windows Features to enable games
