I have not tried it, but in theory you should be able to use xmonad as a 
window manager for X11 applications in Windows.  However, you cannot use 
xmonad to manage Windows applications.  I have seen some interesting 
customizations of window management in Vista, so it is conceivable that 
if the correct hooks are available, and if the X11 portion of xmonad 
were abstracted out, it would be possible to write an alternate backend 
for Windows applications.
