    Reviewing 4.6 Preview (Jan 23, 2015)

    Apparently our buddy commenter Steve doesn't comprehend two things. First, this release is a PREVIEW release. And, most obvious, this site is "beta" releases - in this case PREVIEW ... so don't moan about something not working. My god, now ridiculous.

    Reviewing 4.5.2 (May 6, 2014)

    Screwed up 3 programs which use .Net Framework 4.5.1 just fine, had to delete & go to Windows update to get 4.5.1 + updates, so install with caution...

    Reviewing 4.5.2 (May 6, 2014)

    Performance improvements have been made with version 4.5.1 of which I feel are noticeable. My least favorite version was 3.5... Too intrusive and slow. I've tried to avoid MS.NET in the past but have found some software now that I like of which requires .NET.

    Yea, was worried about something like that happening so didn't install this yet. Only when needed by whatever software I install or update.
