Hi Gustav:

That is a very interesting article especially when the many links are
followed. I always tend to shun away from standards that are too specific as
I have learned my lessons being an expert in DLS 'Dead Language Society'.

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.
