That's normal. Linux is rarely stated as compatible*, perhaps as to avoid
support nightmares (minimalist distributions and the like). It should work
just fine in practice as SD cards are rather standard. You may need a USB
card reader, I suppose.
*Bought a hard-drive a fortnight ago, which the box said was compatible with
Mac OS and Windows. I am not fond of branding something so generic.
