Well, not being a lawyer, I've sawn something that prevents you to use
it in Open Source projects. At least it's my point of view.

"(ii) that the Redistributables only operate in conjunction with
Microsoft Windows platforms"

So if you compile your program with MS tools, and you include any MS
header/object file to ensure your users will be able to compile/run it,
it can't be used out of MS systems ( It can't be used on Linux/Wine as
example ).

It's against OS definition ( you can't restrict the use of software by
platform ).
