There would be many problems porting and having a x86 port and it's the same thing for ARM on which we can the same kind of fanstasms.
Which problems ? The port itself, the SDK to update, programs to compile for this target, no drivers available on the most heterogeneous pool of machines, ...

Exactly! Since when I left the Amiga developement programming has become politics. It's not what it used to be back then and I don't like it.
