Will older printers work with Windows 7?

Hello Experts,
I have a HP LaserJet 2200D Printer ( C7058A#ABA ) at work. It is old but seems to do a good job without too much trouble. It doesn't run annoying software in the background or make me buy cartridges constantly. I thought about getting one for home. At work we use Windows XP. Will this printer or other older printers like this will work with WIndows 7 on my home computer? Where could I look to check?
Thanks for your help,

Oh wow. I am suprised that they still support this. I thought that it would just maybe depreciate gracefully, but it looks like they have created drivers for it. Because this printer is about 10 years old, I first thought that your link was for a new updated version that was also named the 2200 series. I can't find another. So this is got to be it.
Thanks for your help.

Check on Windows 7 Compatibility Center where you'll find the Windows 7 compatible hardware drivers and software updates.

You're welcome.  PCL and Postscript drivers don't change much.  The All-in-One printers that use hosted drivers don't seem to be supported as long.
