Because you need to BUY it.

Word is not and has never been part of Windows.

You have to buy it. It is part of Microsoft Office.

But you can download free alternatives :-

Office suites :- Openoffice click here 602pro click here These are full office suites that have spreadsheets and other stuff as well as the word processor.

Word alternatives :- Jarte click here, Cryptedit click here Not up to full Word standard, but a handy upgrade on Wordpad.
