Laptop prefered.

Should be easy (fast) to configure. Is this possible without a delay, anyway?

For those who know and understand Linux…?

I’m thinking in migrate from Windows to a Linux operating system… But the main problem to do it is the Linux applications, which I don’t know very well. Could you tell/recommend some applications to me?
I need a good image editor (like Corel Draw and Photoshop in Windows);
A good media player (like Windows Media Player);
A good download manager (like Free Download Manager in Windows);
A nice media converter (like FormatFactory for Windows);
And a nice sound editor.
Those kind of applications are the ones which I use more, so, I need them.
And could you tell me what is your favorite Linux distro too?
Thanks, and sorry for spelling and grammar mistakes.
* With download manager, I meant an application for download common files from web, like music and other suff.

I like to keep my programs and drivers up to date, but manually checking is a pain and some programs have an upgrade notifier, but not all, and the ones that do take up resources. I like how Linux distros have something like this, but have nothing like this for Windows!
There actually IS something "magic" like that for just drivers…works for pretty uncommon drivers as well, but its free version limits you to two downloads a day.
It’s called DriverMax.
