Sierra Titles on Steam

Steam News has word that Activision has added five new titles to the service, and all five are on sale for 25% off between now and July 30. Aces of the Galaxy, TimeShift, and 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures are now available, as well as Sierra classics the King's Quest Collection and the Space Quest Collection. Both Sierra collections list Windows 2000/XP as a system requirement, though The King's Quest Collection has a note saying "Some games in this collection may run under Windows XP 64 and Vista 32/64, but are not officially supported."

That was from SQ1 wasn't it?

As the linked page in blues post says:

Quest for the Crown
Romancing the Throne
To Heir is Human.
The Perils of Rosella
Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder
Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow
The Princeless Bride

Says thats 1-7, and 8 is basically Mask for Eternity.
Although they should include that for completition sake (probably had problems getting it to run in XP?) its not really usually considered much of a kings quest game. Its Sierra's attempt to bring 3d to the kings quest universe. I played it and beat it when it came out and was very unimpressed. Its definately not a traditional kings quest adventure game. I'd replay the others, I wouldn't bother replaying that one.
Here's some screenshots of 8:

Interestingly enough wiki says this:
"2006 compilation re-release

In September 2006 Vivendi Universal released King's Quest Collection, a compilation CD for Windows XP encompassing games I-VII. Rather than porting the games directly, however, this release uses the original versions running under the DosBox emulator and a Windows frontend. As a result, it is also possible to run King's Quest I-VI on other platforms with a little tweaking and ports of DosBox. (King's Quest VII runs natively on Windows)

Missing in the collection are the original AGI version of King's Quest 1, as well as the Windows CD version of King's Quest VI with high-resolution character art (some of the original Windows files were removed from this release).
"

This is likely whats being sold. And if thats the case and they use dosbox, there's NO reason why it can't work in vista or windows 7 or anything
