I know there were discussions about Windows support in IcedTea Web 
browser plugin [1] 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
