If you can add just one Linux server onto that network you could use
SIMPL-Python to do what you want.

http://www.icanprogram.com/06py/lesson1/lesson1.html

ie. SIMPL messages going seamlessly from Python (Windows) to Python
(Windows) with the SIMPL sandbox being hosted on the Linux node.

Of course if you wanted to add Linux nodes as processing nodes.
Python (Windows) modules could seamlessly exchange messages with those
as well.  Same would be true if you wanted to distribute part of your
app into the cloud.  All your Python code would look virtually
identical in each of these cases.

As an example of an inexpensive Linux node the SIMPL toolkit has been
ported to the ~$100 Sheeva Plug computer (http://www.icanprogram.com/
simpl/plugsimplbin.self.html)  (http://www.plugcomputer.org).
