How can I ssh -X host into a Windows 7 machine and have Windows apps open in Gnome like they would if I were ssh'ing into another Linux machine?

About the closest you could get to a behavior like this would be to use a RDP client, in a seamless-app mode. I haven't played around with this under Vista/7/2008, but on Windows XP/2003 you needed to install a special seamless agent on the Windows system, then using the standard rdesktop you could start a specific app.

Windows GUI is not displayed using X server, so this will never work. You need to use VNC or remote desktop.
