First, is this something that will evolve into a VS add-on or is it just a cool toy you guys decided to show-off?
Second, can DLinq do updates if the composite primary key values change? I see that the default behaviour is to make the primary key fields read-only. In regular ADO.Net you can get the original values of any field hence you can update a row even if the
composite primary key changes.
Third, I really like this. Can we have the source? :)

Blinq is a prototype for functionality we're considering for the next version of VS.
This post has more details about how we plan on shipping it and when.
The May CTP of LINQ doesn't support updating primary key values because they use the primary key value to identify the row and track changes to it. I talked to the LINQ team about adding this functionality and I believe they'll be changing it for RTM so
it supports updating primary key values to get parity with ADO.NET.
I'm glad you like it. :) The linked post above also talks about giving away source, but the short story is that we probably won't be giving away the source for Blinq. Sorry...
