Source file sharing between projects

I come from the Windows programming world where the source file of a 
project can be shared between projects. You put your classes in a 
directory and when you include them in a project, they stay in the 
directory they are in. When including files in a KDevelop project, the 
files are copied to the project directory. I find that very annoying 
since a utility class can be used in a lot of project and when you make 
a change in the class you have to copy the newer version to all your 
project dir to have the latest version of you class available.

Why is it like that ? What can I gain over my old habits by adopting 
this Linux way of doing things ?
