Well, I just started working on populating a newly installed OS with 
absolutely zero .NET components installed.  Before I had a chance to get to 
the part where I install 1.1 & 2.0, I was offered this huge 3.5 update. 
Apparently, they are not trying to make sure we all have the latest for our 
safety.  Instead, they they appear to want to make sure that everyone has 
ALL of the technology installed, even if they don't use it.  To be perfectly 
frank, that scares me.  I unchecked it and moved on without another thought 
other than making sure I let you folks know of this discovery.
