Astoria September 2007 CTP for Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 is available

After the release of Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2, and the release of the ADO.Net Entity Framework Beta 2, here comes the new CTP of Project "Astoria" that works with it.

If you are not familiar with Astoria – it's goal is to enable applications to expose data as a data service that can be consumed by web clients within a corporate network and across the internet. The data service is reachable over HTTP, and URIs are used to identify the various pieces of information available through the service. Interactions with the data service happens in terms of HTTP verbs such as GET, POST, PUT and DELETE, and the data exchanged in those interactions is represented in simple formats such as XML and JSON.

    so in general, when to use ADO EF vs LINQ? LINQ will be release in VS.NET 2008 late Feb? ADO EF release after, but when? Both can be used with WCF, LINQ need to add attributes while Astoria does it automatically? ADO EF is more geared toward complex domain/object models, even LINQ can also? (well there are different versions of LINQ also, so maybe have to break that down a bit also)
