I see in Add/Remove .NET can be uninstalled in Windows XP and 2000 and have a couple of questions. Will deleting throug Add/Remove entirely get rid of .NET in both OSs? Will there be any loss in functinality? As far as I know, I'm not using .NET Is there anything to be aware of deleting .NET?
You can delete it, but I wouldn't bother. More and more programs are requiring it - ATI's Catalyst Drivers, for example.
If you don't have it on your system, sooner or later a program is going to want it & you'll have to re-install it.
