Do XP and Vista come with the .NET Framework Version 2.0 out of the box? Or do they need a service pack installing?

Out of the both, neither version of Windows has the .NET Framework installed. Windows Vista has the .NET Framework 3.0 available as a "Windows Feature", which will also install the .NET Framework 2.0
