    I use LINQ for all of my data access and I must say, I don't know how it can get much better than it already is.  What does OA ORM do for me in the LINQ world?

    Hi Chase Florell,

    Linq is only the query language. Do you use Linq to SQL?

    OpenAccess is filling the gap between Linq to SQL and EF. Linq to SQL is something to start with but nothing you really can build your application on. EF is a very complicated framework where you need a lot of know how to start with and to understand the concepts.

    OpenAccess is somewhere in the middle, as easy to use as Linq to SQL but with features like EF.

    Everything runs out of the box, but nevertheless you have a lot of features and optimization capabilities to build a real application with optimal data access.

    Please have a look at out feature list and examples.

    Kind regards,
