You can run Windows programs under Wine if you want to.  MS Windows is
not required.  And the executable of a Windows program never gets
linked with Windows: there is no address resolution done, and Windows
never becomes part of the executable.

Anyway, the Windows development libraries include the call stubs for
the system calls, and consequently are accompanied by an appropriate
license for their use.
