some more

Advantages of .Net:
* Rich controls - the framework comes with a large set of very robust and useful server and client side controls for creating interactive grids, calendars, wizards, and much more. Many of these have a lot of functionality right out of the box. There is also support for defining your own controls.
* Rapid development - you can generally throw a fairly dynamic website together pretty quickly with ASP.NET.
Disadvantages of .Net:
* Does not allow for easy unit tests - the framework tends not to support automatic unit testing with tools like NUnit very well, which makes test-driven development difficult. MVC based frameworks like Struts or ASP.NET MVC do a better job of this.
* View state - often times view state can get really large or have negative effects on performance. This is especially true for some of the more complex server controls

1) If you install VS the .NET framework will be installed as well.

2) If this application is for windows than using the .NET Framework is normally not an issue since most computers have the framework installed already.

3) The are many advantages but the greatest advantage is that you do not need to re-invent the wheel as many things are included in the Framework: Communication stacks, I/O, Data.... and of cource many GUI items.

4) The disadvantage is that it makes your application more windows centric (althought can work on Linux see MONO project)
also there is occasionally minor performance issues.
