Today I'm excited to announce our plans to bring SQL Server to Linux as well. This will enable SQL Server to deliver a consistent data platform across Windows Server and Linux, as well as on-premises and cloud. We are bringing the core relational database capabilities to preview today, and are targeting availability in mid-2017.

So this is happening. I feel a little cold all of a sudden.

This is very interesting indeed... I want to read the fine print first though...

Yes. It will be interesting to see if the Linux version will have / reach feature parity with the Windows version within a reasonable time (to me, that is about a year), or if it will remain a "starter" version, designed to attract customers, and then force them over on the Windows version when they need more advanced features.
