Essentially the same situation as ARM, then, so will need lots of effort to port MMBasic (*), it seems.

If the CPUs are cheap enough & powerful enough, with guaranteed availability, may happen I guess.

Meanwhile the RPi Pico is excellent features & performance for the money!

(*) MMB4L probably vastly less work :)
