With VS2005 you get .NET 2.0.
With VS2008 you get .NET 3.5.

Remember that 2.0 and 3.5 frameworks include all previous versions too.

Not really - .NET 2.0 doesn't include .NET 1.1, which has a different
CLR. The framework libraries of .NET 2.0 include all the framework
libraries of 1.1, but that's not quite the same thing.

In particular, it makes sense to have both 1.1 and 2.0 installed, but
when you install .NET 3.5 it supercedes .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.0.

I didn't know this, thanks for the explanation. I've always thought that
2.0 includes complete 1.1. I guess all the texts that I took this knowledge
from were not that specific.
In particular, it makes sense to have both 1.1 and 2.0 installed, but
when you install .NET 3.5 it supercedes .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.0.
And from what I've read, 3.0 is not a complete framework on its own (brings
only libraries and no CLR) - it can be installed only on top of 2.0. Please
correct me if I am wrong here too :)

You can download and install 3.0 separately, but it includes, and will
quietly install, 2.0 as well.

The same with 3.5 - it is a self-sufficient download, but it will
install 2.0 SP1 and 3.0 SP1 as well.

Why not just look at the list in the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel?

They're listed there...no special program needed.

Thank you for the clarification.
