Question LINQ to SQL or not?

Can someone please tell me what the advantages and disadvantages are of using LINQ to SQL compared to the (data handling) method used in "Professional DotNetNuke Module Programming"?

There are a number of advantages and disadvantages when it comes to LINQ and DotNetNuke.

I personally prefer to NOT use LINQ simply because support for the {objectQualifier} and {databaseOwner} is not something native with LINQ.

Yes, LINQ can help improve time to development over the standard data methods for retrieving information from SQL Server, however, I just don't see the benefit.

Now, using LINQ to manipulate collections and items like that, well it is just downright amazing from that point of view.
