I sure there are some decent Web servers available for Macs, especially the 
recent ones that are Wintel-based and use OS/X (which is FreeBSD-based), even 
though Macs are only targeted as artsy-fartsy workstation and home-user systems. 
  If you have to drop it, I'd choose a Linux distro, especially since you don't 
already have Windows software to which you're hog-tied.  There's 20,000 files in 
the Debian software repository.
