Yes
NOOBS is just Raspbian and a number of other versions of Linux (some with XBMC installed) on one card so you easily try them all out.

AFAIK every download listed on http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads will work on every model of Raspberry Pi :D
(aaprt from the ComputeModule, which is a special-case)

If it doesn't, please let me know!

So you're saying that they've all been updated with the B+ bootcode.bin and start.elf else they won't ALL run on a B+.

It's probably worth noting that NOOBS uses its own copy of bootcode.bin (and, I'm guessing, recovery.elf instead of start.elf). As a consequence of this (which was posted in another thread) if, for example, an rpi-update of Raspbian results in Raspbian getting an updated bootcode.bin (in /boot), that needs to be copied into the NOOBS recovery partition too.
However, I'm not sure whether we're discussing a bit of a "red-herring" here - I interpreted the O.P.'s reference to "hardware" as "other external devices" and suspected (like others) that NOOBS was being regarded as a "different O.S. to Raspbian" ie. hadn't understood that it is "only" an installer of O.S.'s (of which Raspbian is just one example).

Still running Raspbian Jessie on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W) but Stretch on my 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

Yup, along with minor kernel changes too. You won't believe how much testing I had to do! ;)
