Because the revision number is not known until AFTER the commit. How would you embed the revision number into a file before you commit, then commit and magically have the be the correct number? The design of svn just doesn't make it feasible.

You can use every svn command on windows that you can on linux. Just install the svn command line client to use in your build scripts. You can use multiple clients on the same working copy as long as you match the same major.minor version of the (svn library) they are built with.
