depends what you want to do with it. ldap is just a form of database, and can be used to do many many things. What do you really want to do with it? Additionally Active Directory does a lot lot more than just the functions of an ldap server, with domain memberships, policy etc... openldap has nothing to do with this.
I would like to just say that I second the notion of sticking with active directory. If you are managing windows clients AD is the best tool for the job. From central user / workstation management to Using GPO's for user policies and pushing out software.
As much as I would like it to open ldap can't do that.
