Good choice :D

I like Thunderbird (email) and Amarok (music player) better than their
default equivalents. You might occasionally have use for Inkscape
(vector graphics), Audacity (audio editing), or Gobby (collaborative
text editing). And don't forget Open Arena for all your
railgun-and-explosion needs.

As previously mentioned, nothing to worry about.

Go to LUG meetings. Hang out in IRC. Learn how to look for help from the
community (e.g. Ubuntu Forums).

If you've encountered a problem, chances are someone else has seen it,
and they probably blogged about it. Teh Googlez are your friend.
