Get the elephant out! Sorry, but I'm called whenever a LINQ-query does not perform. Strangely enough, TSQL ain't dead, and there's more people who know how to use the profiler than there were five years ago.

Yes, but almost nobody knows where to get SQL Profiler for SqlExpress - or how to profile it without profiler.
And yes - i also called whenever developers got troubles with LINQ/other modern framework/ORM/etc. That's why i'm sure - nobody cares 'bout SQL code Smile | :)

Correct. Because there ain't that much tools that actually add value. TSQL is alive and kicking however, and there's a huge amount of SQL-developers that are looking for tools to help in their daily tasks.

IMHO developers are looking for tool which allows produce more sql code for less time but not tool to produce correct sql code, 'cause developers first of all are C/C#/etc developers and only in last turn - T-SQL developers.

Not sure if i'll able to quickly write article in english but if somebody interested - they can read auto translated review (as for me - seems like the article translated "good enough").

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ru&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=ru&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fhabrahabr.ru%2Fpost%2F151179%2F&act=url[^]

HabraHabr - is something like IT-Tech news channel/forum/discussion board/etc.

ps call me snooty but as for me - "i can easily find errors in my database" - this is enough big value. I'm not a salesman or something like, i'm technician and benefits of tool are obvious for me.
But! I've worked on it more than 5 years and so what is obvious for me - is not obvious for other people
I guess i should find someone with unblinkered point of view to write review.
