Then C++ is your best bet. While there is a C# environment, it
requires a lot of complicated setup. Visual Basic is limited to
support inside of Office applications.
When you (or someone else) does the Mac port, the UI could be done in
Objective-C/Cocoa, for ease of implementation. That doesn't affect the
back-end code, so no need to worry about that. As long as you keep the
actual server part as separate from the UI as possible, and
Windows-specific features used as little as possible in the server
code, it shouldn't be difficult to port.
