Okay, I don't want this to be an MS bashing session.  But I ran into a problem where I believe a hotfix will resolve a problem I am having in a .Net 1.1 application.  The problem is around a bug in certain kinds of serialization/deserialization in the .Net 1.1 framework  SP1.  The MS Knowledge Base article says there is a hotfix, but I have to go through support to obtain it.  If MS knows there is a bug in the .Net framework and has a hotfix, then why do I have to pay $99 for e-mail support to obtain the fix?

Is there a legitimate reason?  Again I am not looking to bash Microsoft.
