which operating system

Hello .....I have never used Linux before and think it is a great system.
I downloaded Ubuntu desktop edition 10.10 32 bit on disc remembering to tick box in internet options..allow active content to run from cd..
I will install it ...after I find out what else I need to use.
My needs are
Mail
Information from websites about either technical stuff or just the weather or google earth
Burn dvd...own ones
YM chat with wife ....very important that one.

I have xp and windows 7 starter....

My question is ...what do I need to download ...programs linux to be able to do what I do now...

Thank you for any replies
