Yes, it does support sserver on linux.  What you are looking at is a 
chart recommending the most secure, functional, and easy to use protocol 
in a given situation.  Basically, SSH is recommended to non-Windows 
servers because it is 1) set up by default on most all linux 
distributions and 2) is extremely secure.  SSH isn't recommended on 
Windows because it requires additional 3rd party software to be 
installed and (as I recall) has some issue with the username being 
reported to the history / permissions / auditing functions.
