Subject: Re: IronPython 0.9 Released

"Luis M. Gonzalez" Announced:
MS website says:

"""System Requirements

* Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003; Windows XP

You must install the .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package
Beta 2 prior to installing IronPython."""


And


"""Important: You cannot install two different language versions of the
.NET Framework on the same machine. Attempting to install a second
language version of the .NET Framework will cause the following error to
appear: "Setup cannot install Microsoft .NET Framework because another
version of the product is already installed." If you are targeting a
non-English platform or if you wish to view .NET Framework resources in a
different language, you must download the appropriate language version
of the .NET Framework language pack."""


So, one has to uninstall their stable .NET Framework to install a beta
.NET Framework to try out a beta release of a new Python? Would this
not be of concern to folks who actually build ontop of .NET (and want to
be sure their current code / applications / tools work)?

It is really all or none with MS, isn't it? If the
language/application is not ready for prime time, why would someone commit to beta code
and a beta framework upon which other applications depend?


I may have the wrong perspective on all this, but it really befuddles
me.
