XP/7 compatability

I'm thinking of buying my wife a laptop. TheOS nowadays is Vista with a "free" Winwows 7. The main use for the laptop would be the same as her computer i.e. games. Would games used by XP be able to be used with Windows 7 as the OS? What limitations are there?

Thank you Fruit Bat /\O/\, - next question - which I guess is what I should have asked in the first place. If I buy a laptop with either Vista (upgraded to 7) or one with 7 will the programmes be able to be enabled in a similar fashion as the XP mode for Windows 7? Thank you gor your prompt reply. I can use it on my computer which I am considering upgrading to 7 from XP. I really like XP but I feel that the way things go it will have to be upgraded sometime. Am I righr?
