1. its kinda individual preference, depends on who you ask and what you are going to use it for

2. upgrading to 2gb will not hurt no matter what OS you choose (2gb is the MAX)

3. most add on hardware should be compatible being as where its gonna be USB anyway and as long as you have the proper drivers for the OS that you are using it should work

All os's will run well, 2 gig ram is the max as has been said. If you can get a faster Ssd without spending a fortune then this will also make a massive difference.

My recommendation is osx i have found this runs faster than the others. Everything will run fine in osx the mic is a pain to get working but is great. Win 7 second place and xp 3rd also ran mint for a while but im not a fan of linux just don't have the time to play
