    Hi,

    Is there anyway to get simulate how my PHP would behave, if it were to be used on a Mac or Linux etc Operating System (OS)?

    Many Thanks, any response greatly appreciated!

    For Linux it's easy, download one of the many distributions, install it, download XAMPP for Linux and run it. XAMPP is a package that contains apache, php 4 & 5, mysql server, ftp server, ...
    For testing on Mac OSX, you'll have to get VMWare and follow the instructions from the OSx86 Project to get it to work on your PC. You can download XAMPP for Mac OSX too.
    Note: if it's just a one-time test, you can download a trial from VMWare, but you still need to buy Mac OSX. Otherwise you'll have to buy VMWare too.
