Agreed.

And besides "LING to SQL" and "LINQ to XML", Microsoft has also created LINQ to Objects, which gives LINQ the ability to query any collection or object that implements IEnumerable. And there are already third party LINQ providers specializing in querying particular data (web queries, RSS feeds, etc).

And of course, there's PLINQ (Parallel LINQ) that automatically runs queries on multiple cores/cpus.

LINQ rocks. ;)
