    I see forums.macrumors.com runs on linux whilst the main site runs on FreeBSD.

    No mention of OSX, any reason for this?

    Because FreeBSD, linux is free. There is no charge to download / install and the use of programs like apache is free also.

    Thats whats cool about open source. I just had to buy the hardware i build a full on server running FreeBSD that did Web, DNS, Samba, Mail, Scanning Mail for Spam / Virus Webmail etc Didn't cost me a cent for the software.
