Please reread your link.  This is only concerning the .NET 'Redistributable'.

The redistributable is one version of the .NET Framework SDK that Microsoft 
allows to be redistributed in binary form under a certain set of licensing 
conditions.  This is analogous to Microsoft allowing the .NET runtime to be 
bundled as a static library with .NET applications, but only under some 
specific license terms.

*This _does not_ say that .NET applications produced with the .NET SDK are 
forbidden from distribution or deployment on other platforms.*
