Yes, you can, with Icecast2. Go to http://www.xiph.org/cvs.html and read
on how to check out the "icecast" module from anoncvs at xiph.org. If you
require Win32 binaries, check out Oddsock's port on www.oddsock.org. He
also wrote Oddcast DSP, a plugin for either XMMS or Winamp that can be
used as the source for streaming to an Icecast2 server.

How should anyone besides Microsoft know? Apart from that I find it
highly unlikely, MS is welcome to implement and support Vorbis - the
libraries and the specifications are BSD licensed. That said, WM9's
biggest new feature is a lossless mode which has nothing to do with Ogg
Vorbis. If you want a free alternative to that, check out
flac.sourceforge.net. FLAC can be used within the Ogg framework, too.

Afaik, libparanoia is is not very portable to Win32 systems. The CDex
guys probably did some non-trivial changes to implement it in CDex. So
my answer is "no", however, I might be wrong.
