It should support XP fine.

BEST for it would be the newest OS you can get because those will better exploit the multicore abilities and be smarter for the purposes of power management.

Any - shouldn't matter.  BUT, that said, if you don't mind POSSIBLY reinstalling in 6 months or so, and POSSIBLY having a problem here or there, I would instead recommend Windows 7 Release Candidate - but download it soon - they may remove it from the web site.
