With the exception of C# programs, probably, because
corresponding free libs are under construction so that no
non-free libs are going to be necessary for running
typical compiled C# programs.

Concerning other programs, in what ways are they hobbled
exactly?  Do you think that this license actually gives
Microsoft legal means to take action against someone who
runs their "redistributable" on a computer which does not
have Microsoft Windows installed?  Or is it just (like I
tend to think) a matter of putting "requires Microsoft
Windows" on the box of any software that is produced with
Microsoft's tools?
