I am new to Ubuntu(Just installed and trying to locate software). And
this is the first time I am working (with a serious intent) on Linux. I

some time for new versions of software or new software to appear in
Software is normally updated with each six month release. You can use
backports (unsupported updates), but they only support certain software
and is usually a little bit behind.
For Thunderbird check out
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ThunderbirdNewVersion. Take a look at
Manual instructions for installing the newest Thunderbird. It mentions
version 2, but works just as good for version 3 as it mentions. I just
did that myself today and it worked fine for me on Ubuntu 9.10.
For Netbeans. If you want the newest go to the netbeans site and
download the newest version. They have put together a very good
installer for Linux. That is what I did and I am happily using 6.8 RC2.
PS: I am already in love with the Ubuntu Desktop.
Ubuntu is easy to fall in love with.
