Can you still buy linoleum on a board?

I want to get rid of my 12"x12" cracked ceramic tile bathroom floor. I like the tile look though. I saw some hard linoleum in a house I like. They put it down at least 15 years ago. They said they bought it at Home Depot, and that the linoleum came already on a board? It felt a lot stronger and more durable than tradition sheet vinyl. Does anyone know what I am talking about and if it still exists?

Been in the business 50 years, never saw any vinyl pre-installed on a board.

I don't even understand what this means. There are tile products which get installed with less stringent subfloor requirements (but do require a more flexible grout). Snapstone is one such brand.

I want to replace my current tile, granite, or whatever it is because it is cracked and the grout gets so dirty. I had a relative tell me she got her linoleum floor from Home Depot at least 15 years ago, and that it came on a board that her husband cut to fit their small bathroom. There must have been another step that she was unaware of? But she says they bought it on 'the board' at Home Depot.
