The official source of information on Managed Providers, DataSet & Entity Framework from Microsoft
The Microsoft SQL Server team is working on a portal page that brings together common resources and community links for all data access providers to Microsoft SQL Server. We’d like your feedback on how useful you will find it and what else you’d like to see included. Although, at this time we’re concentrating on bringing together the most useful links, in the future we might include more content and your feedback will help us to determine which additional content and links are most useful. Our goal is to give you a single page you can bookmark in order to use as the starting point for your data access needs regardless of the technology you’re using, and to make it easy to explore the different options available to access Microsoft SQL Server in the most efficient way.
Using the Site Feedback link in Additional Resources on the right hand side of the page, please send your feedback, before June 30th please, on the general usefulness of this page, what additional content you’d like to see included in the future and what additional links you’d find useful.
The new portal page can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/sqlserver/connectivity.
