Possible components:
-Music manager (itunes-like)
-Photo manager
-Photo editing
-Movie Creator
-Song Creator
-Website Creator
-DVD Authoring
-Desktop Publishing

Music Manager
-Rythmbox is most likely. It's default in Ubuntu, well supported, and feature rich
-Banshee is another option

Photo Manager
-Shotwell is Ubuntu default, and very good

Photo editor
-GIMP (raster)
-Inkscape (vector)

Movie Creator
-Openshot is more feature rich
-PiTiVi has gotten good reviews, is easy to use, but is missing a lot of features

Song Creator
-Jokosher: the only basic music authoring program. Doesn't work, hasn't been updated in several years
-Qtractor seems to be a good compromise between the heavy-duty tools and something easy to use
-milkytracker/rosegarden/hydrogen are in complex and heavy-duty.

Website Creator
Unsure at this point. Many options are available, but I can't find one that is in Ubuntu.
-Amaya
-OpenBexi
-Aptana studio 3
-Maqetta
-Bluegriffon (open core)
-Bluefish editor (not wisywig)

DVD Authoring
-DVDstyler
-Bombono
(Both are relatively comparable)

Desktop publishing
-Scribus
