I have played with the LINQ to DataSet stuff, but to me
it didn't seem any more simple than doing regular SQL queries.

One of the claimed advantages is that you get compile-time checking of the syntax of your linq query so you can know about syntax errors earlier in the process. However, if I'm writing a sql statement I'm (probably :-) going to test is as soon as I write it by running the program, so I'll know about errors right away anyway -- so I'm with you, doesn't make sense to me.

Now linq to objects, that does make some sense, when I have a List<T> and I want some subset of that list for an action linq is great -- especially when the subset is more complicated than FindAll() can manage simply.
