SqlMetal is now LINQ to SQL classes in Visual Studio .NET 2008

So, I looked at SqlMetal and thought it was real interesting, and even found a nice tutorial.

In the new Visual Studio .NET 2008, you just have to do two things to use the new features that are similar to SqlMetal:
  1. Ensure that your project is set to Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 in the Project Properties
  2. Then just Add an Item... and select the LINQ to SQL Classes item

That's it and now your rolling with LINQ and SQL. Ya!
