Is Net Framework Client 4.0 needed for consumer use?

It takes nearly an hour to install the update and subsequent patches for it. Is it really needed for average consumer? What does it do exactly?

My impression is that it might be called upon to run features in a modern program. If so and it's not installed, will it call for it? I think in the past with Frameworks it doesn't prompt and takes research to find it's needed, unless the Program installs it itself.
