LinqToXSD? NO!! Linq To Schema...

I had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation given by Joe Healy about Visual Studio.Net 2008 SP1.  As the tagline goes, "It's more than just a service pack."  As it turns out, that is SO true.

The feature that stood out to me the most was the built-in support for VB.Net coders like myself to easily program against XML objects.  As I remembered it, it was called "Linq To XSD", or "LinqToXSD".  After spending a few days looking for it, I have found that it is actually called "Linq To Schema"!  Argh!

Here are a couple of important links for this technology.  If you are not sure what this is, click the second link first.  It shows a demo.  The first link is just to download it.  I will let the video speak for itself...
