This is mostly true, but LMMS is abnormal observation. It has vestige, which works only for windows VSTs. LMMS does not have support for Linux VSTs unless it is compiled with carla.
I guess that whole LMMS and Vesige thing got me believing that there might be a DAW that supports a plugin format from another OS. Qtractor appears to support Win32 VST's out of the box, but that's via DSSI ("Dizzy"). I hope that Carla will support it one day and that LinVST3 will keep on being developed.
I might ask the Carla dev, who recently left this forum, about Windows-VST3 support in Linux-Carla in the foreseeable future in his own forum/IRC (dunno what he's got).
