LINQ in Action - LINQ Book & News

Linq rebranding

Soma announced that the naming scheme for the Linq technologies has been simplified:
LINQ to ADO.NET includes:
      LINQ to DataSet
      LINQ to Entities
      LINQ to SQL (formerly DLinq)

LINQ support for other data types includes:
      LINQ to XML (formerly XLinq)
      LINQ to Objects
So long DLinq and XLinq... Welcome Linq to Whatever!
I agree that this will make things a bit more explicit, especially the separation between what is related to ADO.NET and what is not. It will also help implementors find names for their products using Linq. We can expect to see more LINQ to Something in the future...

Is this really official? I think its good because having XLINQ, DLINQ and LINQ is a little more confusing than having a lot of LING to xyz.
