Now that .NET v3.5 SP1 has been released (along with VS2008 SP1), we now have access to the .NET entity framework.
My question is this. When trying to decide between using the Entity Framework and LINQ to SQL as an ORM, what's the difference?
The way I understand it, the Entity Framework (when used with LINQ to Entities) is a 'big brother' to LINQ to SQL? If this is the case – what advantages does it have? What can it do that LINQ to SQL can't do on its own?
