C# runtime requirements

Hi!

I'm new to C# and Windows programming.

On what Microsoft platform is the .NET Framework and CLR part of
Windows, that's it, installed by default on end-user's computers? And
what version of the Framework is it? I tried to find answer on this
issue in e.g. ".NET Infrastructure and Services" or ".NET Framework
Deployment Guide", but it is not covered in detail. Or is the condition
for C# (and C++) applications that .NET framework and CLR is never (and
will never be) pre-installed on Windows operating system per default?
Thanks for any help
Regards
Marcus

None of the Windows operating systems currently come with the framework
already installed, any version. Windows Server 2003 is the only
publicly available Microsoft OS that includes a version of the framework
by default, and it includes version 1.1.
