The Orcas March (aka Feb) CTP is now available for download. Included in this release is the Entity Framework, LINQ to DataSet, LINQ to XML, LINQ to Entities, and much more. It’s available both as a VPC and as a side-by-side installation. I encourage everyone to take a look, and get their friends, family and loved ones to download it and try it out! The more feedback we get from customers, the better product we’ll have.
