an idea - psexec for UNIX systems

There are no dependencies on the windows systems.  No
extra services to install, nothing.  That is the
Samba exists so windows users can access resources on
UNIX systems.  We could tell the windows users that
they need to install an NFS client to access the files
on the UNIX systems OR they can just use samba which
means they don't need to install anything.  No
dependencies. Same concept with this idea.  If you
have a valid username and password for a windows box -
even a workstation - you could get a remote session. 
You could do this from your UNIX session.  Is the idea
clear now or am I still babbling?
