Not trying to discourage you from using Mint, but I don't get it. Why would you want to run Mint, or any flavor of linux for that matter, when all of the programs you named run natively on windows, but most must be run under wine on Linux?
If you aren't going to get the security, speed, privacy and other advantages of Linux, why bother? I just don't understand. Of course I don't guess I really need to.
