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.

b2bwild said it all.
I'll just add that if you only plan to use windows programs there's no sense in using linux.
For the record, crossover pro runs office 2007 just fine :p
