Might want to try a Debian based distro, like Debian, Mint, or Ubuntu,,,, I highly recommend MINT!
Fedora has a really crappy user community. Their IRC channel pretty much sums up their attitude. You cant make a question without first asking the moderator for permission to speak first. Most of the time you will get Veto'ed , especially if you are a new user.
Mint on the other hand works right out of the box, with most of the things new linux users want and need. The community welcomes new users, and people who troll them get banned. (Totally unlike Fedora community)
Ubuntu is OK too, but they do not smash the trolls like the mint community. You get the jerks that start the forum post with "*Sigh*" or "well after checking google...". They have a real elitist crowed that can pretty much shame anyone that they feel like with impunity.
Mint will help you out when it comes to propriatary drivers too. You can have mp3, DVD, and Java without having to do too much.
Ubuntu and other Linuxes have a really stupid "Purist" thing with open source drivers. They will force you to install inferior drivers even when there are much better drivers available. The jerks who package this stuff dont even use the drivers most of the time, yet they will force their ideology / stupidity on you.
Mint on the other hand will give you an option to choose which drivers are best suited for your computer BEFORE it installs. This way you dont waste time downloading, installing, and uninstalling crappy drivers that may even damage your computer.
Well, anyway. Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux!
Once you sift through all the Bullsh--t, it can be a really useful operating system.
I am using Debian right now for my desktop, and I am using Sabiyon for my render slaves.
If you want to use Windows applications like Construct 2, you can install WINE.
