While Mageia and Mandriva does handle mysql, wine etc. just fine, I would leave them as desktop distros , for LAMP servers I would go for RedHat/Centos/Scientific or Debian, as you will find a lot more information and tutorials.
IŽd say also a linux server will have a better performance than a windows server, but as a testbed you could also try WAMP
WampServer, the web development platform on Windows - Apache, MySQL, PHP
I use mageia 2 with gnome and cairo-dock as a desktop at work and at home, been working fine so far.
