I have written many a Lambda expression using LINQ to Entities, but am curious about learning Linq2SQL.

What are some big differences?

    Thanks for the links. But I see they are dated. Now that we are at .NET 4.0, the problems listed may be water under the bridge.

    Do you personally know of any big shortcomings of L2E versus L2SQL? I read one limitation of L2E was it worked with only one database. But that was in 2008. Is that still a limitation of L2E?

    I have used L2E quite a lot, but never needed to use two database at the same time...
