        Nope, M$ reserves the right to change its license at anytime. 
AFAIK, the EULA mentions this "loophole". So legally, those copies
are also non-distributable.

        Also this addendum has been issues not for the .NET stuff, but 
to prevent products like "Lindows" to resdistribute MSCVRT.dll and 
similar DLLs. Wine needs a windows install (at least working DLL's)
to run -- Lindows does not (as their website says). BTW, at college
I smbmount my friends box to testrun wine with our old VB (sic) apps.
