I would try to see if you can run windows 7 on it. Only reason i say this is i've notice that Windows 7 boots faster then xp, it doesn't seem to 'hang' as much when it gets near full load and that it just responds a lot better/faster when running a few programs. This is from my own tests using my N330 Atom Dual Core Processor with Hyper Threading enabled OC'd to 2.0GHz (similiar tests were done on both OSs at same OC) with 2GB of ram.
I would stay away from vista as if it were the plague for a htpc.
