ADO.NET has two subtrees, one uses a specialized DataAdapter for SqlServer,
the other uses OLEDB, and can be used with specific OLEDB provider or go
thru ODBC to use any ODBC driver. I think our first implementation can be a
OLEDB-bridge to Linux-ODBC drivers and after it many people can contribute
managed OLEDB providers or specialized DataAdapter.
The SQLServer DataAdapter exists because:
1 - With less layers performance is a bit better
2 - As XML is the basis for ADO.NET dataset, this adapter can leverage the
XML support that SQL Server 2000 provides. That leads to a lot more
performance for hierarchical data (and believe me, most of my Business
Objects are deeply hierarchical).
