LINQ stands for Language INtegrated Query. It allows for query and set operations, like SQL statements, directly within .NET languages like C# and Visual Basic. This is a fundamental shift in data querying, particularly for Visual Basic, because the standard method for data calls is to use an intermediary object, and that was often in a second language, like SQL or XML.
