There was an add on for the PC card which attempted to do this, I forget its name. But unfortunately the implementation was poor, relying on shuffling Windows windows and copying out parts of the display buffer to re-plot on the RISC OS desktop, which was very slow. The way it should have been done was to re-write the display driver code to plot in to separate back buffers, and the changed area plotted on to the RISC OS desktop. It did have code to strip off the Windows menu bar and represent it as a RISC OS middle button menu, which was clever when it worked.
