Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: RedHat and OpenACS - Wake Up Call
The ease of use and familiarity of Apple would be a nice touch, we would at least triple our prospective users base, and I bet we could even get some interesting press out of it if we make running .LRN on X-Serves a snap.
But that does not help the RedHat people. For them I'd suggest to assume that RH is going to provide an upgrade path (everything else would not make a lot of business sense for them). If they fail to do so in due time, I'd switch to SuSE Enterprise (if you need this extra feeling of good support, now with Novell enhancement) or start with Debian.
Does a lot of k-12 schools uses OS X servers?
Anyway, this is something that we should improve on.

I can only speak for one private K-12 school in Utah-- but we don't have any Macs because of their cost. We are in a unique (?) situation of having virtually no IT budget, but I am able to get PC donations from local businesses that have kept us well supplied with teacher and lab computers.
One of our three servers runs NT 4, another RH 7.3--- and a third (as of last weekend) is running Debian.
I chose to go with Debian on this new server because I need something easy to maintain and stable-- and looking at my options Debian seems to be the most promising. How long I will maintain the 7.3 box before either loading a replacement or moving its functions (email, calendar, personal webspace) to the debian box; I am not sure.
I'd love to take a gander at .LRN, but I don't have the resources to do so until it becomes close to a drop in and go install. OpenACS has been there before (3 years ago for example) but I believe some of that focus has been lost over time.
