If you are using Wine to avoid having to purchase Windows, does this mean you can't use the .NET framework (and other bits with the same license)?

Correct. If you purchased this PC with bundled windows OEM license - then you can use "OS COMPONENTS" on _this_ PC and _this_ PC only. If you purchased a retail version of windows and it's not installed anywhere else, you can use tat license on any _one_ given PC for those "OS COMPONENTS".
