PDC 2005: New Games in Vista & Screenshots

The games that have come with Windows have their roots with Windows 3.1. Solitair in its various forms along with Minesweeper have been the bane of offices everywhere.

But with Windows Vista, Microsoft has gone back and redone the games. And they look impressive. I...ahem..tested these games..at length today here at the Microsoft Professional Developer's Conference (PDC).

In total, 8 new games come with Windows Vista including Chess, Shanghai, a new Minesweeper, a new Freecell, a new game called "Purple Place", and a couple other card games.
