You're more than welcome to try. :-)

The problem is that FUSE is a kernal module + library pair.  To do the
same on Windows, you'd need a Windows kernel driver, and you'd need the
Windows kernel driver interface to support the FUSE operations.

This means you'd have to have the Windows DDK, which IIRC costs money
(as opposed to the Win32 SDK, which is typically free).

So if you (a) have money, and (b) have lots of time to learn the
intricacies of Win32 device driver development, you're more than welcome
to attempt a port. :-)
