not really sure what you mean by that.  NAS's designed for small
business and home users also have web interfaces, and these non-IT
people don't have any problems making windows shares with them.
freenas or openfiler aren't that much harder once you get the basic OS
and raid configured.

also not sure what the win7 file share issue is.  you just need to set
your permissions correctly, the default being "fairly wide open".
