Very new(neophyte) to Linux operating system

Hello everybody,
I just got a laptop from my college yesterday on scholorship basis.
Before that i used a desktop and used earlier Windows XP and then Windows 7.
I as completely blank when i opened my laptop.
First thought that came in my mind LINUX- CUI what have they given me.
After using Windows for several years i found LINUX very BLANK PROVIDING ITS USERS WITH NOTHING.
I called my engineer for a CD of Windows 8, new os for new PC. He told that currently he dosn't has it and for time being can carry ON with LINUX.
So i tried some tasks with LINUX, and a i discovered sheer attraction and elegance in LINUX which lacked in WINDOWS.
In first look WINDOWS looks the best user friendly OS, but it lacks SPEED and requires so many updates and a costly antivirus and its not FREE.
I tried with some USB transactions. Results were amazing.
While WINDOWS took 10 minutes+ LINUX did in not more than 3-4 mins.
I had also read theoritically about the stability of LINUX and NO ANTIVIRUS REQUIREMENT.
Then i discovered LIBRE OFFICE and many apps.

But you know i am a WINDOWS user, i am used to install softwares in a WIZARD way, and installing softwares using yhe commands, i not find alien sought of thing, because i have syudied c++ for two years, but yes its strange.
Now i want to shift from WINDOWS to LINUX ie able to do day to day tasks on LINUX like seeing pics, videos, MS Office is amazing, surfing the web, etc.

I have with lots of time succede in installing VLC but having dificulty with K3b you know MP3 formats,
