Uh, not so much. It might run "some" (but even less on anything after XP), but saying "all" is promising WAY too much. Seriously, I'd be depressed if I saw how incompatible it was nowadays (if I didn't already know). We're lucky anything still works (in Windows). For example, AFAIK, no full-screen in Vista or newer, which might be a dealbreaker for him. :-(

EDIT: My point is that there are varying levels of compatibility, but Windows is sadly not top tier for that anymore.
