Yes, Linux support is on our roadmap. It is one of our highest priorities post 9.2 release this fall. Please do me a favor. Submit a feature request asking for Linux support if you have not already. Include what flavors you are most interested in. Currently our priorities are to support RedHat, CentOS, and SUSE to begin with.
Submitting the feature request will also get you on my contact list. As we start development around Linux support, those who are on my list will be the first to be contacted for discussions around user experience and access to beta.
