This might sounds like a stupid question. But I'm learning Java now and I want to write some simple program for myself to use on Ubuntu.
I had been ASP Dot Net programmer for years. I'm currently building websites using Java based web application. But I have zero experience in developing desktop application for Ubuntu using Java. Just wondering where should I start.

There's nothing Ubuntu-specific about writing desktop apps. As long as you have a JDK installed (which you should, given that you're developed Java web apps), you're good to go. Read http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/getStarted/application/index.html and then http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/ui/index.html.

@Michael: Indeed, the chances are it may be even easier than with other Linuxes, because it's one of Ubuntu's selling points. I use Mint myself, which is based on Ubuntu, and I haven't had any problems.
