You can run Enterprise or Community.  If you like to "roll your own" then go with Community.  You can run as many databases and business you like.

RE enterprise, they have updated some subscription rates so you might find it more affordable.  I believe you will pay per "database and user" for Enterprise.  If you run One Database and have a small number of users and can affor the $40 or so per month license, then running Enterprise will allow you to install what you want rather than figuring out how to do what you want without the Enterprise package.

Generally there are many/many Community additions to odoo.  The additions work on Community or Enterprise levels.  You can also purchase additions "apps" (Ie modules with Costs) and run them on Community or Enterprise.  should be the link.
If you want to just use "OCA" apps, then you can look at:
though best, I feel is to look at Github:

It is important to know that most "repositories" on Github for OCA contain several "modules" within them, whereas the Odoo Apps and the link above are generally showing "modules only" (generally).
It takes some time but you can work through it.

I would be happy to help give you a tour.  I am more of a "user" than a "programmer" but if I can do builds well, my goal is to use Odoo Community plus OCA apps.  I have purchased a few and there are some good ones, but the rigorous build control of OCA is better, in my opinion, than many of the commercial addons.  
People put in a whole lot of work here and they do it because they want/and need their systems to work well and the way they need them to work.

Hope this helps,

Based your experience, I'd suggest you tu buy Odoo Enterprise via an 
Official Partner from, otherwise you'll feel frustrated.

Best regards
