Default New keyboard compatability issues!

I have just bought a new keyboard for my PC, and I have just noticed on the box it came in that it said that it was certified for use with Vista, and designed for use with XP. I currently have Vista installed on my PC but I going to upgrade my OS to Windows 7 in the next few weeks. Will my new keyboard still work without any compatability issues when I upgrade my OS?

It'll be fine.

Windows 7 uses a default keyboard driver. If it has special keys, you need to install the manufacturer's drivers.
