[Mono-list] ADO.NET misunderstanding

One that I really love and have had great success with is SubSonic.   
As opposed to NHibernate, it conforms to convention over configuration  
and is a breeze to get running.  Check out the plethora of videos if  
you need convincing.

Now the previous version lacked true support for Postgres (though  
there were some unofficial extensions running around), but you should  
try and see if you can get the latest beta up & running.  If you do, I  
assure you it will quickly convince you of its usefulness.


Full disclosure - I'm in no way associated with the project ... just a  
very happy user.
