On which versions of Windows (including minimum service pack level, if necessary) is the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 supported?
Also, is this information yet available for .NET 4.0?
BarsMonster's link gives the operating system requirements of .NET 3.5 SP1, but unfortunately says nothing about required service packs. I know, for example, that rather than requiring "Windows XP", .NET 3.5 SP1 actually requires XP SP2. Does anyone know the service pack requirements (if any) for the other Windows versions?
Also, for .NET 4, the link gives the requirements for the pre-release versions. Do we know if these are likely to change for RTM?
