Is it not a violation of M$'s mercenary licensing strictures to share these apps over a network via LTSP without purchasing a license for each terminal?

Same here in the United States. You do that, you're risking becoming the next Ernie Ball. That's a lot of the point of Free Software in the first place--freedom from being assumed a criminal until proven innocent.
