s390 is a little special, because it's neither a desktop nor a server
architecture, but rather a mainframe one. One software installation
can service many thousands of users; these are the things IBM was
talking about when they thought they would only sell five of them. So
it will always be disproportionately low by this measure. Exactly how
far different it is from the rest is difficult to tell.

The other architectures don't have that excuse.
