.Net 4.0 Is Not Included In Service Pack 1 Of Windows Server 2008 R2

Is net 4.0 part of service pack 1? Answer is probably no. It is not part of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, but we can install it with the Installer.

It is an important feature, and why it's not included in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1:  
.net Framework will be inlcuced into Windows WHEN a tool inside the Windows needs it. It makes sense because not many many programs need .net 4.0 runtime and not many were written in net 4.0? So, it is adjustable as long as we can use the installer to make use of it when ever required.
Note: .Net 4.0 was Released To Manufacturing (RTM) in March 2010 after Windows 7 is out, so No Windows 7 tool uses it. But, the next version of Windows, Windows 8 will mostly include it.

Fact: Currently the amount of tools which use .net 4.0 is very small. But it will grow. .Net 4.0 was released with Visual studio 2010 this year, so it takes a time until the first programs use it.
