Here's the info from the compatibility report in total: Upgrading Windows will affect the following features:
Windows Mail is no longer included in Windows; however your e-mail files and settings will still be available after the upgrade. To send and receive e-mail you will need to install a new e-mail program. You can get e-mail programs from other software manufacturers or from the Microsoft website.
Upgrading Windows will affect the following devices and/or programs:
These devices might not work properly after the upgrade. Before upgrading, we recommend updating the drivers for these devices. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel and search for "update device drivers", or go to the device manufacturer's website to search for updated drivers.
Printers: HP LaserJet 1100 (MS)
These programs might not work properly after the upgrade. We recommend uninstalling these programs before upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, open Control Panel, and search for "uninstall a program". (Note: Programs marked as * can be safely reinstalled after the upgrade.)
Microsoft Powertoys for XP
I don't consider the HP printer or the Quickcam to be major problems because I can uninstall them quite easily but the Powertoys I can't find anywhere.
As a matter of note, tonight, after I cleaned and defraged my registery once again I attempted another install of the Win 7 upgrade, and once again, after almost three hours of letting the process run it's course the upgrade was aborted when it was almost completed, achieving 63% towards reinstalling devices and files. The only message that I get is that the upgrade was unsuccessful and my previous version of windows will now be reinstalled.
