Hmm, compare:

vs

http://msdn.microsoft.com/data/ref/linq/

I dunno, I'd heard about this Linq back when and lost track of it, and now here it is, gee whiz.

My first impression is that it might be a Good Thing, if only because it encourages a "bridge" to complex and dynamic queries, not this-class-is-a-table "mappings".

But I did read that lead paragraph and was reminded of Trek, only more like "Shaka, when the walls fell."
