Thank you for your interest in Sitefinity
Indeed, it is our omission that we have not posted the System Requirements of Sitefinity

- Microsoft® SQL Server 7+

Your assumption that our CMS cannot run under Apache is not quite right because the current Sitefinity version runs under .NET2. However, you can use older versions of Sitefinity (from v1.0 to 2.5.3) which operate under .NET1 with Apache. We can add the older version to your account for testing, if you are interested.
Once Apache with Mono fully support .NET2 we will consider adding native support for it. Note that our main target at this time is IIS with ASP.NET 2.0 and we will not provide .NET1 versions of Sitefinity any more.
The database layer of the upcoming version 3.0 of Sitefinity will be supporting MySQL. The beta of Sitefinity v3 will be available publicly through these forums in 2-3 weeks.
All the best,
