sure. jackd == vst host, qjackctl == bidule. asio == alsa.

back when i used windows i gave a shot at porting JACK, actually you can get pretty close building it in MinGW using the portaudio backend, but some of the IPC/shared-memory stuff will need to be rewritten, at least some windows IFDEFs - theres lots of tutorials out there from IBM & Microsoft developer websites pretty much giving copy/pastable lines, if youre serious about figuring it out, personally but i didnt bother beacuse what was i going to plug PD into? was i going to start a grass roots effort to convince the commercial devhouses to support this?
theres some other hacks out there, on a shared-memory plugin level (tobybear mixbox, dmi freewire, jaltoh soundbus) and driver level (virtual audio cable) you might want to look into..
of course, you can use WINE apps with JACK now, ive had some success using Samplitude in this manner, which is the only windows app i really miss..
