A two pronged question for you all...
Here at work, we've prematurely put .NET 3.5 on our production server (Win 2003, which previously it had no .NET at all). Ever since, every time we apply windows updates have been restarting IIS. (Which is fair enough, since it's been patching the .NET installation.)
Now, first question: Is this new behaviour going to continue, or shall we assume that once it's "up to date" it'll return to the previous behaviour of rarely needing to restart?
Second question: What are the chances that we'll stuff something if we uninstall .NET entirely from our server?
(Info: We have been running ASP classic + a few 3rd party products from Persists)
