Well, you did ask whether you can. To the question of "can," the answer
is certainly yes.

What you really want to know, I suspect, Is how much effort you'll have
to put in to make it functional, and what kind of functionality you'll
end up with. While the last part depends on what you think you'll do
with it, the answer to all of this  at this point is "not much."
Consider that Gnopernicus is in it's very first release, as is all of
gui accessibility on Linux. It's foolish, therefore, to expect the moon.
