It's compatible with pretty much everything Vista was, and more. If it does give problems you can set the setup for a driver to run in compatibility with XP or Vista.

It should fine. Remember that win 7 is not really a new system but more like a very clean running win visita sp3. Most drivers and apps that worked with visita should be fine for win 7.

The thing is some of my friends says that windows 7 will also work even with systems like PIII (?!). Is there is any compact mode of windows 7 to work systems like pIII.

It works, of course. Why wouldn't it ?
So does Windows Vista and Windows server 2008 data center edition. Wink
However, barely "working" might not be satisfactory enough.

And no, there doesn't exist such thing as a "compact mode" of Windows 7, or of any other version of Windows for that matter. (atleast not officially)
The only thing close to the "compact mode" would be the starter / basic editions of Windows 7, which are nothing but the same package with few features disabled.
On a old-ish hardware like a P3 you could probably have a passable desktop experience with 512 MB RAM, but I (or MS) wouldn't recommend it.
