    The jury is still out on this one for me.  I do have .NET framework 1.1 
and 2.0 installed already (along with whatever updates there have been for 
them) since some of the software I want to run demands those.  I 
intentionally have been avoiding .NET 3.0 & 3.5 since I have no need for it. 
The one .NET update I've been offered in the last couple of days (on ALL 
systems including Babydoll's) is just about a quarter of a GIG!  And it's 
centered around .NET 3.5.  I haven't had the time to really do any research 
into why they're pushing 3.5 now, especially as a critical update, but I do 
know that the package also contains previously released updates for the 
earlier versions I already have.  I already have those updates, so I don't 
yet see ANY need to accept this.  Of course, that's subject to change once I 
really look into it.

    You're talking about two updates though, so I have no idea what else 
you've been offered.  The one that I'm seeing is labeled as "Microsoft .NET 
Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) 
x86" and is a ridiculous 248.4MB in size.
