Both, IMHO. I use both UNR and Win 7, and I love them both. You could always do a dual-boot of both.

I multiboot win-xp, xubuntu and debian.
When installing ubuntu, it will make a grub list for you.
If you select "grub in MBR" (Master Boot Record), you'll have a menu to choose which OS to boot into when your mini starts up.
As to making a backup of your OS, I have been using Clonezilla.
I use a flash stick (SD card in a stick).
I save my backups on a separate data partition on my mini-10, and later copy them to another SD card for archiving.
It takes some time getting used to clonezilla, and I haven't restored with it yet.
I forgot to mention on my mini-10, I deleted the Dell rescue partitions.
The First Dell rescue partition made it difficult for grub to work from the MBR.
I just deleted it while installing xubuntu.
I later needed to use a supergrub boot disk to point grub back to the MBR and include windows.
I eventually reinstalled windows, just to make it a "clean" installation.

As the launch date is on Thursday 22nd October some resellers may be offering some special pricing to encourage people to 'switch', or you could try checking on-line resellers, such as Amazon, for example.
