I take it you mean Ubuntu in its direct form like the standard Desktop OS ?

If so there is a arm version of Ubuntu Server 14.04 coming out soon but thats a ARMv8 only. Now heres the catch our Tegra Note 7 is based on a Coretx A15 SOC which is ARMv7.

Now the only version of Ubuntu i know that was ported to ARMv7 was Ubuntu 12.04.

There was a Tegra 2 Version of this which you can read about here : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/TEGRA/AC100

So its possible, however as of yet the only other option would be Ubuntu Touch but thats not a native ubuntu.
