They already have (at least in part):

Borland's 32-bit DOS extender implemented a subset of the Win32 API.
Phar Lap's 32-bit DOS extender ditto
wine (on Linux WTF | :WTF: ) must reimplement much of the Win32 API.
And IIRC, there is some (not very popular) project to produce a clone of Windows NT (at the API level).

To the best of my knowledge, none of those have been sued by Microsoft.

Microsoft have done many stupid (IMO) things, but they are not the worst players in their field.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
