I'm currently at work so can't verify. I would assume OS X comes with iWorks, which should have a word processor or editor...now that you mention it, I'm not sure if a text editor comes with it by default.

Look in Finder, Applications for one.

There is a basic text editor included called "TextEdit" also bundled with your mac will be a 30 day trial of iWork which includes the word processor Pages. As for books for a new Mac user you can't go wrong with Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual.

Some nice free software to start out with at:

http://www.opensourcemac.org/

For MS Word type formats (.RTF, .DOC) I like using Neo Office. For plain text editing, I like Text Wrangler (and not just because I'm from Texas).

So, there are my freebie favorites for text related stuff.

Hope this helps.

TextEdit is the default word processor that comes prepackaged with Mac OS X, but as mentioned there are a ton of them out there. I'm a big fan of OpenOffice.org and Bean. Bean's very light weight and handles a lot of what you can throw at it. Not to mention, they're free - not $350 like the MS Office suite.
