It probably depends on how often .NET will be updated after the initial release. For instance, I always distribute MDAC, because there are so many versions and mixed pieces of different versions floating around on people's computers.

> it will be something that people download once or install
> with IE/Service packs etc.

Once? Really? I wish I could share your optimism Smile | :)
