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.

b2bwild said it all.
I'll just add that if you only plan to use windows programs there's no sense in using linux.
