MS phasing out LINQ to SQL????

Nov 4, 2008 at 5:55 AM
I was reading this article discussing microsofts possible plans to ultimately phase out linq to sql (  It looks like they'll still offer support for it but they're deciding to choose to go with the MS Entity Framework instead going forward.

Personally, I'm furious.  Why even release LINQ if they had no intention of keeping up with it? 

What are your thoughts on this?
