See http://www.apple.com/macosx/ and Wiki:AppleMacintosh.

The Macintosh operating system - the MacOS X version is based on an OpenSource Unix (FreeBSD on top of a Mach microkernel if you're a geek smile ), which makes it a good server for TWiki sites. Earlier versions (up to MacOS 9.x) are non-Unix based but can run Perl.

Using MacOS built-in spellcheck in TWiki

While researching options for spellchecking within TWiki text boxes, I discovered that MacOS has this capability already built in! When you're editing a topic, simply control-click anywhere in the test box and then select the "Spelling" submenu. There's even an option to "check spelling as you type" which underlines suspect words as you type! Very cool!.

Some interesting issues with the way MacOS does Unicode filenames, found a while ago - see MacOSXFilesystemEncodingWithI18N. This could affect TWiki sites using I18N where MacOS is used as client or server.
