Best distro for a SUSE person?

My only real experience with Linux is SUSE (well, I’m a Mac user too for what that’s worth). I’m torn between using Linode, which has openSUSE, and DigitalOcean, which has much better prices for what I need the most - memory!

So, if I move to DigitalOcean what would be the most “similar” distro for me to use? I’ve installed a CentOS droplet, and for the most part it’s functional for me, but of course I got lost first thing just trying to find Apache - heehee. Is there a better choice for me to use that will be more intuitive/obvious for me?

Thanks for any suggestions!

There aren’t similar OSes to OpenSUSE available really. You could go with CentOS since it uses RPM too however the package management and basically everything else is different. <br> <br>I would go with Ubuntu Server since there is the largest amount of community support available for it.
