ADO.net general issue

I've just started getting my head around ADO.net and I can see the power of datasets for disconnected environments. However I can't quite see what the equivalent to an ADO CONNECTED recordset is. Surely on-line, concurrency/locked environments haven't disappeared overnight.
I would be grateful if someone would point me to a good article, or give me a brief rundown on the recommended approach to take using ADO.net for connected environments and the control for managing locking.
Cheers.

There is no more connected recordset. You cannot keep the recordset on the server anymore. It is all disconnected.

I was quite astonished when I heard it at the Microsoft conference last year when they introduced ADO.Net... I just couldn't get my head over it, nor can I see the advantage of doing it that way.

You cannot do that anymore...

I was starting to come to this conclusion.
So am I right in thinking that I should still be using ADO (not .net) for such connected requirements, or is there an ADO.net strategy which I could use as a work round.
Hope the COM-Interop is OK!

There is no work around. Sure you can still use ADO, but then you won't have the advantages of ADO.net. It's a design question.

Sorry to push you on this but I do want to get this issue nailed down for myself (the points are yours).
If I absolutely must have the equivalent of a pessimistically locked recordset, I cannot have one from from ADO.net so must go to ADO? True/False?

Unless your SQL Server is SQL Server.Net (I believe it is not out yet though)

Seems like a bit of an overreaction from MS to the 'new world', when much of the world is still old.
Many thanks.
