Sudo Apt-get command use.

Ayo folks,

I'm looking for another distro which I could follow this tutorial without a problem:

I can't use Mint/Ubuntu (Trust me I tried) Fedora doesn't use the command sudo apt-get (it use yum) OpenSUSE (forget it about it).

so I need something like DreamLinux, Kurumin (I don't care if it is gnome/kde/xfe.) and it works with sudo apt-get commands (and I could follow the tutorial).

Any other ideas?

The only distro that uses sudo in that manner is Ubuntu (and its many derivatives), so if you can't run Ubuntu then you are a bit stuck. Debian is close, but you would have to login as root in the terminal and execute those commands without the "sudo" part.
