It would be like if your devs all used xterm to connect to a central unix
server to do their work, storing their working copies beneath their home
directory. While the unixes have natively supported larged numbers of
remotely connected users for a long time, Windows started out as a
single-user system and isn't very good at multi-user mode yet today. There
is third-party software to help (such as Citrix) and Microsoft has released
an enhanced server that supports multiple remote users but this style of
working is still the exception among most Windows users.
