Microsoft .NET Framework penetration numbers

(link bot tonight) Via
"Microsoft's Scott Wiltamuth posted numbers from Microsoft marketing on .NET Framework penetration.
More than 120 mln copies of the .NET Framework have been downloaded and installed using either Microsoft downloads or Windows Update.
More than 85% of new consumer PCs sold in 2004 had the .NET Framework installed.
More than 58% of business PCs have the .NET Framework preinstalled or preloaded.
Every new HP consumer imaging device (printer/scanner/camera) will install the .NET Framework if it/s not already there – that’s 3 mln units per year.
very new Microsoft IntelliPoint mouse software CD ships with the .NET Framework."

Are there any pentration numbers for the .NET 2.0 framework?
Yeah, that's what I would like to know and you can throw in some numbers for .Net 3.0 Framework (featuring WinFS) while you're at it.

And we can't forget all the other flavours of .Net that have been scooped out to the hungry developer population:

yea... February 13, 2007... five days after VCSY placed a cease and desist for infringement against VCSY patent by Microsoft .Net Framework... in all her glory, one would think. Think of all the embedded devices that might fall under that 'infringing' category.

You know, getting to penetrate so much is sure a lot of fun for the softees, no doubt, but, having a potato stuffed up the pufflepipe is a great way to blow out an exhaust valve. And you can get your smog checker burnt to a crispy quitter by a high octane backfire, don't you know... I'm just talking here.
