I think one thing that is increasing the inertia of ".NET" is that it is becoming more and more of a buzzword for program managers on up in larger corporations that want to move in this "new" direction. My CEO decided on it even before he knew exactly what it was (good thing he hired me to architect it since I had about a year of experience starting with the 1.0 betas). Of course, this is extreme (and extremely stupid) but I see it happening more and more.

We do, as you can easily tell, have a .NET application and bootstrapping the CLR has been a problem, especially since the bootstrapper that Wise uses for the MSI product doesn't force the selected runtime (if a newer one is installed, it doesn't bootstrap the .NET installer). When I get time (someday Frown | :( it won't be hard writing a new one, but we have had complaints from people trying our software out that the .NET runtime is just too much of a hastle. This is an Internet-deployed smart client, so they have to take the time to download and cache (ala Fusion) our application as well.

I do forsee this picking up when Longhorn reaches fruition, but wide-spread adoption of that I'm sure will take time (especially since it requires a much beefier machine).

So long as people keep up-to-date with Windows Update (and I know that has been a problem Microsoft has been trying to address and push...and I agree they should), they should have it. Perhaps when more free/shareware developers take note of this they will reconsider.
