Bashing Vista is no longer the "cool" thing to do. Because its just lame.
The only point to make is the Dell Mini 9 is too low spec (Ram and Hard Disk) to run Vista brilliantly. Upgrade them, and it will work perfectly even with Windows Aero enabled
Then you could install Vista, partition the hard drive into two, Install Mac OSX on the other partition.
Then boot off the Vista Disc and repair the boot loader that Mac OSX removed, then load back into Vista and Install Vistabootpro (http://www.vistabootpro.org)
Set it up with Mac OSX on the other partition then you got both working, with a on boot loader which lets you select which one you wish to boot up

I don't believe that Vista does anything that XP can't, so there's really no need to torture yourself with Vista. Me, I plan to install OSX on my Mini, and run XP in Parallels. I've run Parallels on an Atom based machine before, it actually ran fairly decently. Definitely far from Native speed, but usable on a limited basis, which is all I ever used it for.
