Is linux right for me?

Hi, im thinking about converting from windows, and i need to ask a few questions before i do.

Regaurdless, i have notebook PC x32/x86 bit, 2GB RAM, and a 120GB HDD, and an intel Video card, a RealTek wireless card, and i have a 500GB external hard drive.

since im on a laptop(that thinks its a desktop) i need to know if i will be able to use the touchpad (i backed up all the corresponding files for it).

i also need to be able to use a few programs...

1. Adobe Photoshop CS2
2. Autodesk 3DS max 2009 x32
3. Steam to play Counter strike source, and work on my own source mod.
4. Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0
5. My wacom tablet

i backed up all the files for all these programs on my external HDD

please respond fast, ill be doing this tonight.

Thanks,
-Dante

P.S. what i mean by, the laptop that thinks its a desktop is that, my laptop has no screen, and a big monitor, and a external mouse, and an external HDD (as well as an internal one) and an external source system.
