Steve Jones' editorial today was questioning the use of LINQ. His focus was on the security aspects. The discussion went past that. This is a bit of circular reference since I posted over there and linked back to my ORM Concerns post below. There are a lot of interesting points being made. Some of it, from a DBA stand-point, is quite repetitive although I'd prefer to think of it as reinforcing. Steve's editorial is worth a read and the discussion is excellent.
