I try to keep to the LINQ Enumerable, but definitely do not like it. The advantage and disadvantage of the LINQ Enumerable is that the LINQ statement is only executed when it is needed; That can cut down memory, and processing. Of course working with them in the debugger can be painful since you have to physically cause the LINQ to be executed with the Expand results. Also, after a while can no longer even get the LINQ to execute. I therefore will sometime convert to a List when programming so that debugging is easier, and when I am finished, convert back. I have also found that I need to convert to a List when working with EntityFramework because errors cause once out of the Object Context. I also have found that working with WPF binding, it can be advantageous to go with a List.
