Some might rightly consider this old news, however the LINQ to SQL death notices were brought back to the head-lines by Redmond Developer News. See the link below for the full article:
I've pasted in my quote from the article below, as it is very representative of our position on where LINQ to SQL and where the ADO.NET Entity Framework fits in the general .NET data access landscape.
' "I don't think the Entity Framework is necessarily perfect, but I think it's going to change the outlook of data access in .NET," said Jonathan Bruce, ADO.NET technologies program manager at DataDirect, which is a subsidiary of Progress Software Corp. "I think LINQ to SQL will likely find its niche in small, in-house proof-of-concept type projects because it's easy to get going -- it has a very lightweight data model." '
You can hear a great discussion on this topic, "Bullet Proof your Data Access on the .NET Framework", an online webinar we did with the Stephen Wynkoop a SQL Server MVP, and founder of SSWWUG. Check out the link below to listen into the discussion.
