Here's another recommendation for FreeBSD, which I run on both
my web/mail/DNS servers and my laptop, with both CMUCL & CLISP
(and Apache & PostGreSQL & Postfix [instead of sendmail!]).
One nice thing: FreeBSD's Linux emulation libraries are *very*
good at running most Linux binaries (e.g., Acroread, Mozilla),
useful when there aren't pre-built FreeBSD native binaries handy.
