[Mono-list] ADO.NET

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).
