Gnome only works on i386 and amd64?
GNOME works on all Linux architectures.
GNOME *without hardware 3D* will probably have big trouble running
anywhere but on i386 and amd64.
So in the real world, it depends on the architectures:
* real-world desktop powerpc hardware comes with hardware 3D and
* real-world ARM hardware comes with hardware 3D and non-free
* not sure for mips* and s390
So of course if you want to be sure it works in a Qemu host, GNOME is
probably not the best choice. But in the real world it’s a bit more
complicated than that.
