VS Extensions for WinFX?

    Can anyone enlighten me why I need to download a freakin' 1 gigabyte CD image to be able to install the VS Extensions for WinFX? Especially when the VS Beta 2 build didn't require anything like that?

    This gets even more annoying because the download page blatantly tells me straight into my face that most of this gigabyte isn't functional.

    Short answer, you don't. The VS Extensions is only a few megs. The big download is for the whole WinFX SDK. The reason it's so large is that it's now included as part of the Window's Platform SDK.
