Sam Druker (my boss's boss's boss, on the left) and Anders Hejlsberg talk about the May CTP of LINQ, Entities and the future of ADO.NET on Channel 9.
This was Duncan Mackenzie's first Channel 9 interview since joining the C9 team as a dev. I think Duncan did a great job. Some of the comments on the Channel 9 post are worth a read...one caught my eye: "Andreas has a nice hand writing..." ;-)
Mike Champion of the XML team (part of the Data Programmability team that I'm in) has been tracking the BS'o'sphere over on the XML team blog since the LINQ CTP.
