Default ORM Framework related

A few weeks back I had asked a question about DevForce Express (Should I use it?) in this forum. Now I have found on the internet an open source framework called NHibernate which is very similar. Which one should I use? Open source or Microsoft? Since Dot Net is Microsoft would it make more sense to stick to a Microsoft suggested product? What problems am I likely to face?

Thanks

Venky

Vendor lock in! i.e Your vendor will change the spec so you have to buy the new version.

And of course with a proprietary product you don't have access to the source, so you can't improve it. Or learn from it. Or use it on more than one machine. I'd always plump for the product that gave me the most freedom to use, modify, share and improve it, which is always going to be the one that's Free(as in freedom) or Open Source Software, unless there was an /extremely/ compelling reason that I couldn't.

Technically hibernate and nhibernate also look (from first glance) to be more powerful tools:
http://www.hibernate.org/263.html compared to http://www.ideablade.com/technical_overview.html

YMMV.

"http://www.hibernate.org/263.html compared to http://www.ideablade.com/technical_overview.html"

This comparision does'nt seem to be enough since hibernate is for java. On hibernate.org I came across this -
http://www.hibernate.org/360.html
but they say there is no databinding support in NHibernate. Can you point me to a location where someone has already done a comparision or if you have one?
