All you need to work with LINQ (Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5) is now finalized!
The final release of Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite is now available for download for MSDN subscribers. Hopefully, all editions of VS 2008 will be released for everyone soon.

Update: As announced by Soma, the entire family of Visual Studio products (from the Express Editions to the Professional version to Visual Studio Team Suite) and .NET Framework 3.5 are available for immediate download for anyone. .NET Framework 3.5 includes .NET Framework 2.0 service pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.0 service pack 1.

Where are the LINQ templates? I just installed VS 2008 Pro and MS apparently does not want to make LINQ readily available or easy to use.

Well, it's the opposite. No specific templates are needed.

LINQ is integrated in .NET 3.5, which means that you can use LINQ directly in applications and libraries you create. The required assemblies are referenced by default.

Thanks!  Since submitting my question, I have done a considerable amount research and now realize how dumb my queston was (and is).  I fully understand what LINQ is.
