i'd say use linux and donate the saved license fees to some charity. for 
linux-audio related questions, may i invite you to the linux audio users 
list at http://linuxaudiodev.org ?
if you lack unix expertise, i'm sure you will find some kid in your 
community who's got or is willing to develop the necessary skills to 
keep a linux server running.
