Perhaps because it is *harder* to network Windows than Unix?
Skimming this thread something I would suggest that may be falling
through the cracks is to unify your user accounts across all the
machines. No matter that user "joe" isn't supposed to be using a
particular machine do not reuse joe's userid on that machine.
Also reconsider the need to share all filesystems across all machines.
A typical Windows "network application" often runs client-fileserver
rather than client-server. When one can not remotely login to a
single-user Windows machine, filesharing band-aids that issue.
Multi-user Unix systems trivially allow remote logins including ftp and
scp file copying.
