I am planing on switching over to ubuntu on a older laptop I have that has aa few issues right now I figured wiping the os clean was an easier move. Since I don't have the money for a new lap top right now.
I know I will need to back up my stuff thats not an issue what I am wondering there are several programs I use I am wondering if they will work on ubuntu or not
Namely: Firefox, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Office, Gimp, World of Warcraft.
these are the main programs I want to bring over and keep I am wondering if they can be used on ubuntu and if I need to do anything special to make them work. Any help at all would be wonderful thanks.
