Being extremely generalized, the word server has two meanings:
1) a _machine_ that is serving files and services
2) a _process_ running on a machine that listens on a port and allows
other client processes to connect to it

You're thinking like #1 and everybody is trying to explain that you're
in #2.

Because no ssh server process is running on Windows, so nothing is
listening on port 22.
