The Pi, unlike the the Beaglebone Black (BBB) doesn't come with an OS.
The two images I've used both support a serial console (via the USB port or
the UART)
where you can run the standard Pi set-up program to enable ssh.

The BBB cleverly presents itself as a disk volume and then lets you
ssh in via a virtual network running over the USB port on your
computer that's also providing power.
