Suse is a pretty good distro from what I hear, but I don't have a lot of experience with it.

I'd recommend you consider trying it for free before you invest money in it.

hi dobdd, welcome to LQ

there are lots of distros you can try, the vast majority of them totally free to download, use, and distribute:
