"They don't sell it."

Products developed on top of the .Net framework sell Windows licenses though. So in the end it actually does lead to direct sales, which is why they'll never officially support .Net on any other platform...in essence it would be a public admission undermining their own platform which doesn't make any sense from a business standpoint.
