I'd imagine DOS having...

     o no shared libraries
     o no long file names (... DOS has the 8.3 format)
     o no multitasking
     o no protected memory spaces
     o no multiuser system (... that's probably not a big deal)

Would make GNOME running on DOS difficult.

But don't let that discourage you.  You can think of that
list as things you need to 'work around' to get GNOME
working on DOS  :-)  (Maybe there's a POSIX layer for DOS...
but I don't know if you'd consider it running on DOS if you
used that.)

See ya
