There are many challenges that have dogged attempts to mesh the
DBMS & Object Technology realms for years, critical issues
The big deal about LINQ has been the singular focus on
addressing point 1, in particular.
I've already written about the Linq2Rdf effort that meshes the
best of .NET with the virtues of the "Linked Data Web".
Here is an architecture diagram that seeks to illustrate the
powerful data access and manipulation options that the combination
of Linq2RDF and Linked Data deliver:
What may not have been obvious to most in the past, is the fact
that Mapping from Object Models to Relational Models wasn't really
the solution to the problem at hand. Instead, the mapping should
have been the other way around i.e., Relational to Object Model
mapping. The emergence of RDF and RDBMS to RDF mapping technology is what
makes this age-old headache addressable in very novel ways.

This document is empty and basically useless. It is generated by a web service that can make some statements in HTML+Microdata format.
This time the service made zero such statements, sorry.
