I might switch to Linux but i still have some questions about it.?

Is it user friendly to use if you have never used a Linux system before? Is it easy to install? Will it fit on a 6 GB harddisk? Will it run on a pentium 2 with 500-600 mhz? Is it free to download, and if so, where can i download it?

What would be the difficulties between Windows and Ubuntu Linux for the migrating Windows user?

I wish to migrate to Ubuntu 8.04, because I think it would benefit my programming education, and I would get some needed computer literacy skills, but I believe I’ll have problems with Linux from the first time I booted the Live CD – no, it’s not about my files – I don’t have much to migrate:

1: Are there Linux versions of Adobe software? Will I be able to use Photoshop?

2: What’s the difference between a GNU freeware CD Burner and a shareware version of Nero? Will I be able to do the same actions with Linux as I will with Windows?

3: Does Linux have problems connecting with WiFi? I’m used to the Windows Vista Wireless connection setup application, so to me, I don’t know any other way to connect than just press a few buttons.

4: Will I have the same ease of use with Linux as I will with Windows? Will I be able to play DVDs and CDs? Will I still be able to use iTunes?

5: What are the limits of WINE? Can I run World of Warcraft, .exe files, and Second Life?

Sorry, I’ve been brainwashed by Windows :D.
6: Can I change the system language and typeset as freely as I do in Windows?
7: How often do errors occur in Linux? Will I finally be given a break from the everyday errors that I simply have to shake my head to?
rodro.bistri: Well, at the moment, it’s hard to choose a best answer… but since you asked nicely, and there’s one top contributer posting – I’ll consider you :D.
