I am curious what they provide and/or define fully as
"Redistributables", other than the obvious sample applications, in
VS.NET.  It seems to refer to the core SDK and stuff that might be
likely to be used or inserted into generated applications, such as
perhaps might occur with projects initiated thru their so called "wizards".

This covers the MFC and MSVCRT DLLs. The MSVCRT is the equivalent of the
Linux glibc. It also contains the code that is needed to setup the
C-environment (argc, argv, envp, heap and stack) for each C and C++ program.
So this EULA change in effect means that each and every (practically
relevant) program developed with VS.NET must never ever be run on a
non-Windows operating system.

In the short-term this seems to be directed at Lindows. In the long term it
will hit Mono and DotGnu. How useful is a CLR clone if no software is
allowed to run on it?
