I believe its technically doable to make such an application. Though 
fighting with the extX filesystems may be tricky(there are drivers for 
it and also applications that aren ot drivers but can write to them). 
Otherwise windows is not so unusable with the openmoko. The serial debug 
tools are available as windows binaries, its possible to connect the 
phone to a windows pc and share internet access with it. Also there are 
ssh clients available on windows. Its just not so easy to find out abput 
all of this from zero. I do agree that the ability to do all necessary 
things with windows computer would be good to have.
