The Skinny on LINQ

LINQ is a great feature for those of us who are developers and a God-Send in some ways because it allows to to have SQL like syntax to manipulate your data objects in C#. This is definately one of the great reasons to use .NET Framework 3.5. Traditionally if you wanted to manipulate data (which is what we developers do most of the time), you would have to transform between Datasets, XML documents and configuration files. With LINQ, you can now use SQL like syntax on objects that use the IEnumerable Interface, Datasets or XML!

You can read up more about he LINQ project at MSDN.
