    .Net 4.5 Advance Services is running, .Net 3.5 (including 2 and 3) is optional. It will download if you check the box.

    Also installing ATI Catalyst will automatically enable .NET 3.5, download and install it for you during the Catalyst setup.

    Does windows 8 more better than the win 7 OS version? Is it possible that the windows 8 will have bugs in it.
