With an X server running on a Win32 machine, it's possible to run X

However, has anybody tried the other way around -- having Windows
applications appearing on a Linux desktop, the Windows applications all
being run through a specific Windows (NT) based application server?
What do you mean by application server? Do you mean in the
Citrix/thin-client way, or do you just mean an NT box running an application.
If you mean the former, then I believe that there are Linux Ctrix clients as
well as for other thin-client methods. I've never looked at this myself as
we don't run NT (except to control a network aware photocopier that never
sees the network).
If you mean the latter then have a look at VNC. VNC is a free cross-platform
remote-access tool ala PC Anywhere. I personally use this from my Linux
workstation to remotely support 100+ Win9x PC's over two sites.
