preferred hardware/OS/compiler for slapd

I will be ordering hardware to put up a slapd server in the near future.
If you were buying a brand-new system as a standalone slapd server for a
44,000 name database, what would you buy, and what additional software
would you put on it?

I already have Sparc/Solaris, 386/Solaris, HPUX, FreeBSD, Linux and NT
systems in my environment. I'd prefer to stick with one of those, but if
slapd is happier on something else (DEC OSF? AIX? VMS?) let me know.

Thanks for any advice.
