As much as I have enjoyed playing with the Entity Framework (Beta 3), I will be uninstalling shortly after this post.  The fact of the matter is, my company is not prepared to go to production in a couple of months with something that hasn't seen a lot of action.  The EF certainly seems stable enough, but, I can respect this decision.

The good news is that we are still using VS 2008 & .Net 3.5.

Also, my plan is to maintain a design that we can migrate to the EF without too much effort.  Hopefully in a few months we will have met that goal.

The simplest thing that works...

We will be writing methods to execute commands against the database and stuffing the results into lists. All of the team members know how to do this and I cannot afford the time to get everyone up to speed on something like NHibernate when we would prefer Linq(to SQL).

This may seem like a lot of menial work, but it is work we know how to do relatively quickly and requires little investment.
