    Well it depends on your preferences really. With no software firewall, if one computer becomes infected it could easily spread to other computers on the lan. How much do you trust the users of the other systems? :)

    And even worse. In case a computer is infected it can easily spread to the Internet (in case the lan has internet accessible)
