Definitely. Technically speaking, Seven is Vista, of course updated, with a few pieces optimized (thanks for instance to not needing anymore a stellar support of AGP cards), and with some changes in that thin layer that's visible: the user interface.
My experience with it is that it works without trouble, even on my EeePC. Like my Vista did...
