FreeBSD was designed for servers, but Apple used it to create Mac OS X.
At work we had a linux server with an uptime of 560 days between restarts. That is the power of linux, show me a Windows machine that will run well after being on that long. I had to restart our Windows servers once a week before we reformatted them with Ubuntu Server instead (we got rid of our only ASP app.)
it's all about the money/market and about this one
(OpenGL vs Direct3D)
