Hmm, I've had the opposite experience. .Net's everywhere and Since Vista and newer comes with it and anyone who has XP w/ Windows Updates turned on have .Net. I haven't had to stop and wonder if my clients have it or not, because if they don't have it then that means they're running something really old (like Win98) or they're running Mac or Linux, of which Mac & Linux couldn't run my non-vb.net apps either.

As for speed, my .Net apps only run slow if the whole system runs slow, meaning it's an old computer and it's the hardware not the software so much.
