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.

I can at least vouch that the Tegra 2 version of Ubuntu worked on my Acer A500. If you can live with the basics, it's cool, but the amount of software available for ARM is minimal. It's also very unfriendly to touch, so you'll need a mouse. I personally can't think of anything I was able to do with it that I wasn't already able to do more easily with Android, so eventually I took it off.
