Steep .NET Framework disk space requirements

I’m always a little wary when someone writes an application targetting the .NET Framework and then says it’s only 80k. Well, assuming you have the .NET Framework/runtime installed…which weighs in at hundreds of megabytes depending on the version and CPU architecture.

 

Details on the hardware requirements now that .Net 4.0 has been released. The minimum disk space requirements (as of September 2010) seem a little steep:

.Net 2.0                  x86: 280 MB              x64:     610 MB
.Net 3.5                  x86: 280 MB              x64:     610 MB
.Net 4.0 client         x86: 600 MB              x64: 1,536 MB (1.5 GB)
.Net 4.0 full             x86: 850 MB              x64: 2,048 MB (2.0 GB)

I know I’m a snob, but I’ll stick to native programming languages when it comes to writing desktop applications. And hack everything else together with Perl ;-)
