Is anyone out there close to this subject?  My editor at RedGate sent me a link to someone’s blog post that basically took me to this link where I found a beat around the bush statement eluding to the possibility of MS dropping LINQ to SQL.

http://blogs.msdn.com/adonet/archive/2008/10/29/update-on-linq-to-sql-and-linq-to-entities-roadmap.aspx

As I have several applications running on LINQ to SQL I was wondering what people’s thoughts were on this subject.  What do you think the odds are of them actually removing support and future updates to this product?  I don’t think that LINQ to Entities is quite ready to be adopted in the same way that LINQ to SQL was (and it was only sort of ready).  So what are you plans to migrate too if LINQ to SQL is to be dropped?  NHibernate?

Hi There,

I think its unlikely Microsoft will ever drop support for Linq to Sql.
If they did however, their best course of action would be to move it to a community open source project.

cheers!
