I must've missed something ... no problem admin'ing 'Nix from Windows. Shares? SMB/Samba?
NO, but it's more tricky, because you have to set up a Samba server on the Linux box, and then get Windows to connect to it, something that can suffer from weirdness depending on the particular version of Windows installed (hell, sometimes even getting Windows machines to communicate with other Windows machines using SMB is a pain). On Linux it's usually as simple as making sure the SSH server is running (which it is by default on some distros)
