Following up on my own post from moments ago: I had to make a decision, so I went with XP SP3.
Why such a rush, you ask? My niece is buying a higher-end Dell laptop for her parents, and she is taking advantage of the "buy an additional Mini 10v for only $150" offer for me. (I did decide to spend an extra $35 for the longer life battery, but an additional $30 for Windows 7 just seemed not worth it. I hope you don't all start disagreeing with that!)
Anyway, I'm still interested in eventually multi-booting XP and OS X on this Mini. If you know whether or not that is possible, I'd be interested.

Thanks, Canada eh! (Congrats on that Olympic hockey win too.) As you can see from my second post, I am glad you don't disapprove of XP! I see you have a 10v hackintosh -- do you happen to know about the possibility of multi-booting?
