  • No.  The vast majority of .NET Framework 3.0 is actually the .NET Framework 2.0.  .NET Framework 3.0 is simply additional assemblies added onto .NET Framework 2.0.

  • In fact, the only new things in the .NET Framework 3.0 are Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation and Windows CardSpace technologies. The most commonly used .NET components are in v2.0, so you should definitely keep your .NET 2.0.
    As I said before, I never repeat myself.

    More than that... if you try to install .NET 3.0, and uninstall .NET 2.0, the whole thing won't work.  It'll just... stop working.
