Lync Server 2013 is supported for both Microsoft and Mac Operating systems. Make sure if you are deploying to both platforms, you can support issues on either OS.

Lync Server 2013 supports the 64-bit editions of the following operating systems:
Lync Server 2013 is not supported on the following:
Lync Server 2013 is available only for Windows. However, Lync Server 2013 supports the following clients on computers that are running Mac OS 10.5.8 or latest service pack or release (Intel-based) operating systems (Mac OS 10.9 is not currently supported).
For those of you with a mixed desktop platform environment, you will be supporting both Mac and Windows. Here are some helpful tips to help you support such an environment:
A. If you are pulled in multiple directions because of lack of IT resources, then create a list of common Q&A with instructions on how to resolve an issue on a company intranet so users may be able to answer their own questions.
B. If your skills are not balanced out between both operating systems, work with the one you know the least. Being primarily around something new can help you learn it more quickly.
C. For larger environments, it may be justifiable to bring on another resource to help support the OS you are not as familiar with. Adding another resource can help free up your time to work on other issues that require your attention.
