Atari has a forum where you can voice your support for NWN2 on Linux. Supposedly, it might do some good to post there if you want to see it. You can find it here. On a related note, if you are going to refuse to buy/play NWN2 if it does not have Linux support, post a comment here. And tell anyone you think would be interested in this to do so. For the record, I will not be buying NWN2 if there is no Linux support. And no, a dedicated server does not count as Linux support. No client, no sale.
