    If you want lots of eye candy, Ubuntu will do nicely. If you prefer a more bare-bones display and increased ability to tweak configuration, Xubuntu is your meat. If you want it to resemble Windows as closely as possible, choose Kubuntu.

    In other words, the choice is pretty much determined by relatively insignificant features. All *buntu versions will handle your stated tasks, about equally. You have enough resources for any of them.

    I chose Xubuntu originally because my hardware was less than adequate for the flashier versions. I've stayed with it, now having adequate hardware, because it fits my way of working better than any of the alternatives. Your mileage may (and probably will) vary...

    With the workload you have described, I wouldn't bother with virtualization at all. CPU-heavy tasks don't virtualize all that well and neither do GUI programs like I assume you plan to run under WINE.

    "High end encoding" isn't very clear - video, audio, images ... what?

    The hardware seems excessive for the listed items - perhaps 10x too much.
