[Owncloud] OSX Support

My personal opinion is that you should not use MacOS as a server OS. Why
not take any Linux distribution which is basically just a flavor of
MacOS and use that to run ownCloud?

I think for MacOS support we'd need to find a developer who is willing
to support it and since MacOS is very expensive (you have to buy the
overprized hardware too) I doubt that there are a lot of ownCloud devs
who are willing to do this.

if there's anything I could contribute in terms of "basic research", pls
let me know...
