.NET 4.0 Install First Impression

I was installing Microsoft.NET Framework 4.0 tonight and I couldn't help wonder something. Is this the best UI Microsoft could come up with? Seriously, this text control only shows 1 of 44 lines in the EULA. Yet look at all that empty space down at the bottom of the dialog.

Is this for real?


  1. The more things change, the more they stay the same. LOL

  2. That is truly poor form (no pun intended). I thought Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4 were delayed for more polish.

  3. may be, they don't want you to read EULA :)

  4. A friend of mine brought up the free space requirements as they are listed on the download page (
    x86 – 850 MB
    x64 – 2 GB

    Seems just a tad egregious.
