[Ardour-Users] OSX vs Linux

I need advise.
A musician friend of mine wants to build a small home-studio. Seeing my
setup he wants Adrour at the center of it all... (A good demo is a good
selling point :-) I'm running Linux (64 studio on a dual-core AMD PC) so
I suggest him Linux... But his wife being a Mac addict, and he, having
already used some Mac to do simple tasks (photo, video, drawing), wants
to go Mac.
On Ardour site, in System Requirements, I read OS X and Linux. But I
need feedback from users of both camp...
If he goes Linux I can help him with Ardour and the rest... But if he
goes Mac OS X, I have no clue and no time to learn yet another operating
"environment" to do simple task like update/install software, add/modify
hardware devices (disks, MIDI keyboard, dual-monitor, ...), modify
system parameters (dynamic CPU speed, PCI latency, ...), compile/link
source code, ...
What is the easiest path? (I would add: ... the easiest path for me :-)
