Look at other ORMs


I do like Entity Framework as an ORM but I feel its slow and a little bloated. It's also limited in the fact its MSSQL only but I'd like to support MySQL and PostgreSQL users if possible. NHibernate may be a good choice...

There's some nice performance stats here (Dapper is an ORM made by the StackOverflow guys): http://code.google.com/p/dapper-dot-net/ comparing a few ORMs. Entity framework comes last, unsurprisingly. I actually really like http://www.toptensoftware.com/petapoco/ and is only 5ms slower then hard-coded SQL statements.
