Hi all

Julia Lerman wrote this on the different methods to access data in VS2008 and .Net 3.5:


This article has attempted to review some of the bigger areas of comparison between the key data access APIs in .NET 3.5: ADO.NET "Classic", LINQ to SQL, LINQ to Entities, Entity Framework Object Services, and Entity Framework EntityClient. While some of the differences will be very useful to be aware of when you start coding, others may make the difference between choosing one technology over the other for certain scenarios or even for your entire organization.
