Do I need to download ASP.Net core?

I've been reading about ASP.Net core. I came across some sites that list what's needed. They point to this site to download .Net core that can be used with VS 2017

https://www.microsoft.com/net/download/windows

Now,I came across this site that just lists VS 2017 and Node.Js (scroll down to Prerequisites)

Do I need to download .Net to go with VS 2017 or not?

The question is do you want to develop something that will .net core i.e. for other than a windows platform?  Your decision on what you want to target the development for will decide which components of VS2017 you want to install.

If I just want VS 2017 to develop for Windows (I want to develop a web application using .Net core)....then I don't need to download .Net core? I can just use VS 2017 with the built in .Net Core component that comes with it?
