This is a completely different story.  Andrew said GNOME needs patched

If time permits and good bug reports are submitted the GNOME developers
are very friendly to change the code etc.  Since the developers normally
don't have access to all these systems you might guess how difficult it
is to support them.

Sure, but sooner or later, Linux will run on all architecure and you'll
be free to choose the OS that fits your needs best :)
