So, Microsoft added .NET support to Windows Server 2008 R2 Core, but which is the latest version that is supported? I know it has to be either .NET 3.5 or .NET 3.5 SP1, but which is it?

Windows Server 2008 R2, as well as Windows 7, comes with built-in .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

Vs. 2 and Vs. 3.5 (SP1) are in the box, but Vs. 4 is also supported on Windows Server 2008 R2 Core, but you have to download a special version.
