  • Incase if the Linux OS has its own tools that can connect to DB, if they can do export yes you can do it or If any MS has tools to perform this they yes.

    As per documentation no support for installation other that windows but you don't know what geeks can do i think you should read him :How to run SQL Server on Linux.

    Note : Application on other OS can talk to sql server
