|so what 'flavour' of linux would be closely identifiable to OSX's own terminal and runnings? |
None of them. ;) Mac OSX was built on a platform that evolved from FreeBSD [freebsd.org], which is not Linux at all, but like Linux it is a Unix-clone. FreeBSD has a more liberal license than Linux.
FreeBSD is a great server OS, harder to set up than the Linux variants you mentioned, but extremely stable.
