Not in my experience. The driver included with my Lexmark Optra E312 wouldn't run on Windows 7, nor could I find any Windows 7 driver for this model of printer. (I ended up using the HP LaserJet 1200 driver included with Windows instead, which seems to output a kind of PCL that the Lexmark printer can handle.)
