Wolfram on Raspberry Pi Desktop for PC

I have installed Raspberry Pi Desktop on an oldish laptop and it seems to work very well. But Wolfram Mathematica, which is available on Raspbian on the Pi itself, doesn't seem to be included in the PC version. I assume this is a deliberate thing due to licensing, or am I just not looking in the right place?

Licensing. It's not on the x86 image.

Basically wolfram is normally a very expensive piece of software.

Giving it away on the Pi gets people into their platform without really affecting their main market because the Pi is a pretty weak computer. Giving it away for Linux on the PC would be far more likely to impact their main market.
