Does that exclude Linux?
Yes, we tried to make it clear in the mail by writing "Unix variants (HP-UX, Solaris, AIX)". Linux is usually considered - Unix-like and not strictly a Unix but these are details. Now to make the message clear:

Linux is really fast moving in terms of UI libraries (probably the fastest changing OS as of today). Phasing out slow moving Unix variants will allow for the SWT/GTK port to move faster and better align with recent Linux variants thus benefitting support for Linux significantly by making it easier to implement new features and fix bugs.
