Program Compatibility in Windows 7

So far, I have had exactly 0 compatibility issues running programs under Windows 7 (64-bit). In fact, I'm evening running Diablo II, which was designed when Windows 2000 was out (way back in the day, I know).
As to the XP Virtualization, yes, there is and I find it works quite well, it will read your CD's (except in some cases where I had it wouldn't read a CD in my DVD-drive). But basically, all there is to it is you start up the VM from your Start Menu > Windows Virtual PC > Virtual Windows XP, install whatever programs you can't get working in Windows 7 and voila.
