Entity Framework Rant

Wow, I never thought I'd hate a product so badly just starting to use it. If you've not tried out the new Entity Framework, give it a shot - but be ready to get frustrated and fast. The mere fact that I have to do half of my editing in pure XML and the other half in the designer is absurd. Why doesn't the designer support creating a new entity from my pre-loaded entity set from the database, or the ability to add a new property to my entity! Having to hop over to XML view just to add a new property is painful. I'm also all for "iterations" of code, but why is it when it's generating the model during compile time does it only give me 1 error at a time. Gar! I can't stand this - back to LINQ to SQL.

How about LLBLGEN. it is brilliant and the support has been second to none. There isn't free but it has been worth every penny. Cheers, Pete
