Xserve as web/mail server or PC?

Hi guys,

I've just finished making the switch at home, the office is being switched over during a long weekend in June, and now we just have the web servers, mail servers, etc. to think about. They all need upgrading around August time (typical 18 month cycle, 18 months in August) and I'm pondering whether to get macs or PCs. The Xserve prices don't look bad at all - particularly their storage servers, they're a lot cheaper than the Fujitsu ones we traditionally buy - but is MacOS going to be as good as FreeBSD 6 (what we use now for the servers) when it comes to serving web and mail?

Thanks

P.S. As for a learning curve, it's not an issue as the current sysadmin we have has resigned to take a world tour thing in July anyway so we'll be getting someone new, we can make that a Mac guy if it's the way to go.
