First, welcome to Ubuntu! I'm currently using Kubuntu 9.10. That's bascially Ubuntu with a different default. Though, I plan on switching to
Ubuntu when I come back from vacation next week.
And how do I play music through the headphone? The music plays only through the speaker
Maybe Ubuntu doesn't have a driver for your headphone jack or something? Sometimes that's the case. For example, my SD card reader doesn't work
because, to my knowledge, it's not compatible (at the moment).
Also, you don't need to install WINE if you're duel booting. There is no need to since Windows is still there. (Now you just gotta get rid of that
thing and just use Ubuntu!)
You made a good choice in choosing Ubuntu. It has an awesome
community. Ubuntu has a help forum
you can pretty much get any question answered. There is also a community run site
where popular packages have a .deb
(the Ubuntu equvialent to .exe in Windows) file that you can download so that you don't have to worry about compiling source code to install things.
It is very helpful!
