On our App Center we already have several flavors of GNU/Linux, including Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, Red Hat, Fedora Core and CentOS.
OpenSuse wasn’t there but still you could install previous versions using the provided ISO files. However, what’s the point of having a really flexible platform if you have to install the operating system yourself, every time you want to create a new server?
