I am looking at putting together the pro's and cons between utilizing the Entity Framework - LINQ - or just writing ADO.net the way common to previous versions of Visual Studio prior to VS 2008. It seems that LINQ is not a viable solution as my understanding is it is going away or not supported.
I would really like to gain two things from this question in order to provide points.
1: Web Samples
2) Pro's and Cons - Success Stories.
Please keep in mind that am just putting together a demo for now - a mock website that just demonstrates the capabilities.
I build websites with the concept of a FrontEnd - BAL - DAL and SQL 2005 on the backend for now.
Once I have a working sample in this type of architecture - I will assign points and close the question.
