Note that there *aren't* any major "available by default unsecure operating
systems" nowadays: Windows has the capability of sharing to everyone via
DLNA, but also the of concept home/work/public networks and uses it fairly
agressively to restrict sharing.  OS X doesn't have zones, but sharing
services require authentication[1] (which is not *as* resilient as not
having the connection open, but much better than allowing possibly
anonymous DAAP).

[1] Well, in addition to "iTunes home sharing" which is authenticated there
is also an older, possibly unauthenticated, streaming mechanism.  But
that's a legacy thing that's more difficult to find and set up than "iTunes
home sharing".
