You may have trouble with some older software and with some older hardware, such as old printers or other devices for which Windows 7 drivers are not available. In particular there is no support for 16-bit applications in Windows 7, at least not in the 64-bit versions which are what most systems are pre-loaded with.
You can always run XP in a virtual machine to run older software if necessary. You can use "XP Mode" if you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, for Win7 Home you would need an XP license key from an old machine and use something like Virtualbox or VMware to run XP in a virtual environment.
