Object based querying of data sources

Very informative video from the Channel 9 team over at MSDN.
Object based querying of any (more or less) data source: arrays, XML, DBS, etc.

Some of the comments below the vid are interesting, particularly the comment about FoxPro. I've never used FoxPro, but I'm sure Delphi had/has similar methods for data source access (considering that Anders is ex-Delphi...) and I have vague recollection of Oracle doing something similar with Pro-C? But that was years ago, no idea where it went.
