I've played around some with LINQ now when .NET 3.5 is released and I have to say that I think it is great! LINQ will definitely be a great boost for smaller development shops and small IT departments where there is a need for a to build small internal applications quickly. For large scale development I'm not as sure if it will be used that much as there is already a lot of different solutions for handling the data access (CSLA.NET, nHibernate, SubSonic etc.).

I've also found the tool LINQPad which seems to simplify LINQ development. Here is a screenshot from it.
