    LOL X_X, Welcome to forums..

    ok here you go, --> Application database of wine. -> WineHQ - Wine Application Database

    BTW, Most of the softwares you want to run are available in Linux natively and in better way. there are just alternative to all.

    MS Office - You can run older version on Wine, in some cases newer too. There is an alternative for it - OpenOffice (Supports all MS formats too)

    Notepad - Runs on Wine, actually in-built. better alternatives - Leafpad, Mousepad, Gedit, Gvim, X_X there are just many in linux.

    Windows Media Player/Quicktime - older versions runs on Wine. alternatives - VLC, Totem, Mplayer, Xine, Exaile, Banshee, Rythmbox using GStreamer and ffmpeg. codecs.

    Google Chrome - Runs on Wine (Use PlayOnLinux), but why do you even need that...soon will be available natively on linux.

    Audicity - Available in Linux

    GIMP - Available in Linux

    Google Earth - Available in Linux

    BitTorrent - Available in Linux

    WinRar/WinZip - Format support available for Linux

    GameMaker 6.1 & 7, Line Rider Unbound for PC - X_X dont know what is it.
    check appdb.

    for more alternatives check The Linux Alternative Project - and Windows and OS X Software Alternatives | Linux App Finder

    b2bwild said it all.

    I'll just add that if you only plan to use windows programs there's no sense in using linux.
