The interesting part of this for me was:

  Very soon, important applications such as Apache, Samba, PostgreSQL,
  linuxconf, Sendmail, bind, Emacs, SSL, and SSH were up and running.
  There are now over 400 packages, both source and binaries, ready for use
  on Linux for S/390. 

Guess we are an important application now.  :-)
