Where did you find "some improvements in Linq to Sql" ?

I thought it is discontinued, but I might be wrong.

That question should be directed to Microsoft, no? ;-)

I don't think Linq to Entities depend on Linq to SQL (does it?).
Linq to SQL is narrow-minded "SQL Server only" technology. As Pablo

somewhat wider-minded to open to some other vendors).
