No one is saying that.  Copying of windows software is illegal.  So
regardless of whether the companies are distributing or not, the activity
you describe would be copyright infringement.  You cannot make copies
of Windows software for personal use.

However you can make internal use only copies of GPL software without
exceeding the permissions given by the GPL.  It's really that simple.
