I like Ubuntu, but I didn't recommend it for you because your initial post listed a couple pieces of Windows-only software (like Microsoft Office, ICQ, etc). And Skype is Window-mostly software. It has a Linux version, but Skype doesn't pay much attention to their Linux version (it's several versions behind Windows). And Adobe spends more time making its Flash plugin run better in Windows. (Flash is used by many websites for "fancy" stuff, like games)
Ubuntu does have plenty of spreadsheets, word processors, chat clients, music players, web browsers, etc. But if you want the exact software you're used to, you'll be mostly disappointed.
On the plus side, I think Linux without Antivirus (normal setup) usually outperforms Windows with Antivirus. And installing software via the official repositories is a thousand times easier, faster and safer than installing software on Windows. For example, I use the "comix" program for displaying images, particularly collections of images in zip/rar files, but it's not installed by default. But I can literally download and install it in seconds on Ubuntu. Larger software, like a media player, takes longer, but it's still easy.
So, you could be happy with Ubuntu, or some other Linux distro. But you'll need to adapt to different applications to perform the same tasks.
