I expect you're about to be told this is OT, but for my money I'd go for
FreeBSD, just because of its packaging system (portupgrade).
Also it's as fast as $EXPLETIVE, and the port maintainer keeps the openldap
ports up to date.

Debian apt should be ok though too (make sure you avoid redhat though, we
have a lot of them at work and they are a major pain in the arse to maintain).

Ugh, it's like there's a party in my mouth and everyone's throwing up. - Fry
