Doubtful, usually comes as a trial installation as it's not something that is usually bundled free.

Install OpenOffice or LibreOffice and it'll open the file no problems.

nope that is normal and has always been like that, you get the OS with the laptop, other applications cost money, how else would Microsoft make it's Billions otherwise ;-)

You buy a bike with an engine.
You have to pay for the petrol to use it though.
