I know there were discussions about Windows support in IcedTea Web
browser plugin  on distro-pkg-dev list (CC'ing it), but I don't know
whether there were any results.
Also WebStart module from IcedTea Web should work fine on all platforms
running as following (from the command line, outside of the browser):
java -Xbootclasspath/a:netx.jar net.sourceforge.jnlp.runtime.Boot
