Sales of Linux servers rose 29 percent; Windows rose 16.8 percent, but most surprisingly, sales of mainframes shot up 69 percent " the highest growth rate IDC ever found on mainframes.

Agreed, OSX is derived from BSD Unix.

However the Android kernel is Linux, and that is not derived from any Unix code at all.

Besides, neither OSX, nor iOS, nor Android are server OSes.

Mac OS X is a server operating system, it is used and shipped on Apple's Xserve rack-units.
