So apparently the biggest webserver OS's are Unix, Linux and Windows?

Yes, Unix and Linux more so than Windows.

Well, Apache can be run on many different OSes, including various Linux distros, UNIX variants (Mac OS X, BSDs, Solaris, HPUX, AIX, etc.) and Windows. But Linux would be the dominant one for it.

Apparently Netcraft has reduced the data available on their server surveys though, they used to provide OS information as well last time I checked.
