For Sql 2008 to be compatible on windows 7 , you should install SP1 for SQL 2008 .

I just installed it on my Win 7 64 bit machine.

You can install all editions of SQL Server 2008 R2, with the exception of Enterprise and Datacenter.  See here for more information:

The author is asking about SQL Server 2008 R2, which is not the same as SQL Server 2008.

You can install 32bit and 64bit editions of SQL Server on Win7 64 bit. So: yes.

The advantage is, you can connect to sql 32 bit edition from 32 bit software via shared memory or pipes, the disadvantage is, that the 32 bit version of sql server cannot make use of more than 2GB memory, but if you install on win7 for development purposes and rather need conectivity of 32 bit software, that's perfectly ok.

Yes, it can run without any issues provided you install the editions suggested in my earlier post.
