  • DLinq *is* an ORM

    I just ran across this thread on TSS.NET.  I found it somewhat curious that there is a Microsoft guy on there claiming that DLinq is not an ORM.  While I don't doubt there's a way to construe the definition of ORM to make it not true (as the MS guys seems to try), I think that's counterproductive and just plain silly.  As one of the commenters said, it looks and feels like an ORM, so why not just call it that?
