II7 on Server Core Doesn't Support .NET Framework

Just the other day, a friend dropped by my desk to tell me about something he heard for Server Core Installs of Windows Server 2008.

The Server Core installation option of the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system is a new option for installing Windows Server 2008. A Server Core installation provides a minimal environment for running specific server roles that reduces the maintenance and management requirements and the attack surface for those server roles.

This sounds like a great method of running a secure webserver. But, it looks like IIS7 on ServerCore will not support .NET Framework, at least not yet. So that means no ASP.NET on IIS7 installed under ServerCore.

I guess they are pushing ServerCore more for DHCP, DNS and other server functions.
