Is it a great idea to run VPC 2007 in Windows 7?

I'm running VPC 2007 in Windows 7 because I don't have Virtualization Technology. I would have Windows Virtual PC if I had Virtualization Technology. Now I am wondering, Is it a good idea to run VPC 2007 in Windows 7. Please answer.

You can run it technically and there should be no problems but I would recommend VMware Workstation or VMware Player any day of Microsoft's Virtual PC Solution. They perform better and offer broader OS compatibility as well as 3D Support for Windows.
