XP under VMWare runs fine. I've got it for the Mini and my MBP. It's by no means a speed demon on the Mini, but it's functional.

Dell Mini 9 with a STEC 64gb SSD running OS X Leopard 10.5.6
MBP (Early 2008 model) 2.4, 200GB 7200 RPM, 4GB
Mac Mini 1.83Ghz, 80GB, 4GB

VMware Fusion seems to hit its sweet spot with 2GB of RAM running Windows XP.

I have it loaded on my Mini just for the sole reason of using Internet Explorer to run ActiveX plugins for a few sites.

Like bamf said, it's no speed demon but definitely functional.
