What percent of normal people have the .net framework installed?

It's very hard to get a straight answer on this. And if you mine the stats of a Microsoft related website like this one, you'll get a very skewed answer.

Well a friend gave me some stats about his website, which is a non-technical site, dealing with the 'talent' industry. I think these stats will be closer to 'normal' people than stats I've seen previously ;-)

.NET CLR 1.0.37054.44%(2083 people)
.NET CLR 1.1.14320.01%(6 people)
.NET CLR 1.1.432241.70%(19586 people)
.NET CLR 2.0.406070.01%(5 people)
.NET CLR 2.0.502150.00%(2 people)

The Micro-ISV articles will begin soon -- near the end of next week hopefully. Lots of material put together already, just some deals to sign off first ;-)

The hard bit is working out what to leave out. But hey, that's what good design is all about.
