      U can use any OS to connect on a LAN. Remember OSI model is a set  standard, if u do do not know what the OSI is google it. It is a standard that every network must follow irregardless of operating system. Weather it is a home base or Enterprise network. I, myself have OS X, Linux and Window. All of this OS are in the same LAN. Try to talk to each other is were it becomes tricky. But in the end they pretty much talk to each other. Example, my main OS is OS X, we use Linux as a print server.  We select to print something from the MAC 's to the to the Linux PC (print server). Finally dare I say a Window box. That we use to send file and folder between the Linux printer server and the MAC.   Hope this answer your ?.
