Almost certainly, although one can never be sure with new versions. It's popular, and I doubt that they would remove it for that reason.

Next time I'm talking to one of the Microsoft Vista team members I'll try to find out.

that one of the reasons for the inclusion of such games was to "teach" folk how to use the mouse.

The free game provided all require "basic" mouse skills that none of us are skilled at if we haven't used on.

The games are pastimes that enable gaining the skills.

I play XP's Spider Solitaire a lot, find it a pleasant way to pass time while waiting for: -

a)Reply to an email.
b)A return phone call.
c)Relaxation between computer work.
