Google is your friend and so is Wrox. You could look at getting Professional Linq or there are loads of resources online including The LINQ Project on MSDN.
But depending on how new you are to programming, you may want to spend some time getting comfortable with .NET and data access in general, otherwise you will probably just get confused.

Default ADO.NET Entities Framework (which replaces the LINQ to SQL chapter

I see that Imar's new project for ASP 4.0 has "ADO.NET Entities Framework (which replaces the LINQ to SQL chapter".

Does this mean the LINQ is being deprecated?

As of .NET 4.0 "the Entity Framework will be [MS's] recommended data access solution for LINQ to relational scenarios."

I think they intend to still support and do some type of further development with LINQ to SQL, but the ADO.NET Team is all about EF 4.0. Check out their blog. LINQ to SQL was never really supposed to exist anyway, as the story goes.

EF 4.0 ships with a POCO template and a Self-Tracking Entities template which dramatically improves its persistence ignorance support, and will go a long way towards silencing a lot of the criticisms of it.

Google for "is linq to sql dead" for more info.

I agree with wat Bob said. LINQ to SQL is not dead, but Microsoft is focusing on EF: http://blogs.msdn.com/adonet/archive...s-roadmap.aspx

Quote:
We’re making significant investments in the Entity Framework such that as of .NET 4.0 the Entity Framework will be our recommended data access solution for LINQ to relational scenarios. We are listening to customers regarding LINQ to SQL and will continue to evolve the product based on feedback we receive from the community as well.
That reads to me as: "EF is our way forward, but if we discover major issues with L2S, we'll address them."

That's the reason why I am focusing on EF in my new book, and not on L2S anymore.

Cheers,

Imar
