LINQ to XML provides an in-memory XML programming interface that leverages the .NET Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) Framework. LINQ to XML uses the latest .NET Framework language capabilities and is comparable to an updated, redesigned Document Object Model (DOM) XML programming interface.

The LINQ family of technologies provides a consistent query experience for objects (LINQ to Objects), relational databases (LINQ to SQL), and XML (LINQ to XML).

For more information about LINQ and LINQ to XML, see the Project LINQ Web Site. This site contains white papers about the LINQ project and related technologies.

For more information and news about LINQ to XML and other Microsoft XML technologies, see the XML Team Blog.
