Yah, I agree with Thomas here. .net framework 1.1 and 2.0 have been around
the block several times and I wouldn't regard it the latest and greatest of
anything, but rather a proven and totally stable piece of architecture that
allows you to do more with your computer than you can without it.
I agree with the if it ain't broke philosophy to a point, but eventually
you get to a point where you are limiting yourself and your own
possibilities, both for fun and maybe work in this case.
Take the steering wheel for example. Wasn't there a possibility of it
screwing up your system when you installed the drivers? Sure, but a
possibility so minimal it was hardly worth considering. Same goes for .net
frameword and direct x, which are both just extensions of windows.
I'm not trying to convert you either Jim man, but I don't want folks on
list here to get the idea that installing .net frameworks or updating direct
x is a potential system riskof any significance, because that simply isn't
the case, and almost all game developers on here need folks to be
comfortable with those installs and updates.
