1 Linux

Samba the Linux and Unix implementation SMB/CIFS (aka, Windows File Sharing). If it is not included in a given OS distro, it can be installed easily to share files to Kodi (among other uses). Samba/SMB is often a good choice due to it being highly compatible with other computers, regardless of the OS.
Webmin is a web based interface for linux computers that allows the user to configure and set up just about anything. Users can manage files, configure file sharing, edit configuration files, access logs, install software, access a web-based terminal for commands, and a lot more. It also makes for an easy alternative (in addition to being covenant) to setting up various things in linux for users who are new to it. A must have for any linux HTPC or server.

2 Mac OS X

MediaMaster Server
A simple free GUI webDAV server that is compatible with XBMC v11 and up. Available from the Mac App Store only, but should still work with Mac OS X 10.6.
NFS Manager
NFS Manager is a free GUI interface for managing NFS shares in Mac OS X 10.6 and higher.
Freeware/donationware that installs and manages a new XBMC compatible SMB/Samba server. Very easy to use, and probably the best option for Mac OS X 10.7 users wanting to use SMB sharing to XBMC.

Note: As of XBMC v12.1, XBMC can now use the default SMB server in OS X 10.7 and 10.8, but there may still be issues with 10.9.

3 Windows

Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 2.3.0 : Warning: No results.
