+1 for Dapper along with Dapper.Contrib.

I actively avoid contracts that state EF as a requirement. I understand for some people it's the dog danglies but I can't see a compelling case to use EF.

I know that's just my mileage but I genuinely would like to know why people use EF as opposed to a micro-orm like Dapper or PetaPoco.
