I just installed orcas CTP Jan2007 and things seem to work fine .... but I do not find any trace of Linq. I went to add a refrence, there is no system.data.linq dll :-(
I had installed the Linq may 2006 preview on VS 2005, and there it was, but now in orcas... nothing. Isn't this installed with orcas? And if so, then what use for orcas ;-)
Thanks a lot for any feedback - I am so excited to start working with Linq...

For LINQ to Objects, the DLL is System.Core.dll and for LINQ to XML it's System.Xml.Linq.dll.
Take a look under \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5.xxxxx

thanks a lot for your answer. I checked \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5.xxxxx and as you told the dlls are there...
Buy why they are not presented under the .NET tap in the add reference window? In fact non of the framework 3 dlls are presented there. Should I install something else then orcas that I got from here :
I uninstalled VS 2005 and installed on the same machine VS orcas. Isn't that the way to do it?
Thanks a lot for some more support - I am so eager to discover the new powers !
Thanks a lot,

Just found this post : http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1100902&SiteID=1
but why is it that the framwork 3 dlls are not in the .net tab in the add reference window?
Thanks for any help!
