I downloaded the LINQ CTP and the Blinq preview over the weekend and successfully generated a website first time round, so very happy with it!
My question is - is it safe to install on my main development machine here in work? The reason I'm asking is that when I opened up VS2005 at home, it said about it being a new release of C# (3.0), and not supported.
I'm in the process of developing a website, which would go into a Pilot phase in late summer, and I'm assuming Linq won't be ready by then,

Neal, The LINQ preview has a new C# language service that you can opt not to install (by clicking "no" in that box). The new compiler and other bins get installed into a separate directory, so nothing else in the install overwrites the existing 2.0 bins
or tools, so this should be very safe to install on your dev box. Both the LINQ preview and Blinq uninstall clean, so even if things don't work out with the preview for you, you should be able to remove it pretty easily.

I must have missed that first time round!
I was impressed by the Blinq website that I generated on my home PC, simply because there wasn't a whole ton of code that got created, like when I ran the Nettiers web app generator over the same DB.
I'd like to give Blinq a blast to generate a site for a production app - it would be an intranet Admin type site, small volume of traffic, what would your thoughts on this be?

Seems a bit risky then to be using it in a web app that would probably go-live in Autumn.
