is there difference between linq and entity Framework(in 4.0 linq not used only entity framework is this correct)
Posted

LINQ is a basic feature added to C#, there is no way they took it out in 4.0. According to google there is a thing called Linq to Entities, so I guess that means they are different things. Looks like there's tons of info on both, if you google them.

LINQ to SQL is largely SQL Server only, not so much by design as by implementation. The EF is designed to support, and does support, multiple DBs, if you have a compatible ADO.NET provider.
