Is Raspberry Pi/ ARM based computer support likely?

Hello

I use an ancient PC with Debian happily with Softmaker. I simply don't need more for my business. But I like to think about the future!
When my current machine gives up, I'd love to start using a Raspberry Pi. I can get everything working, but I'm stuck with LibreOffice.
It would be great if you included support for ARM processors. I suspect there would be at least as much interest as 32-bit Intel.

No plans for that, sorry. It's not just about building it, there is also a commitment included for us for continued development, bug fixing and customer support, and I don't see this as viable. Raspberry is a cool tinkering tool, but there won't be any significant number of people doing office work on it.

Of course, Martin. No shortage of x86 machines, and I'm delighted that you still support Linux. Thanks for the reply.
