Any plans to use Microsoft Entity Framework ?

Jan 2, 2011 at 3:39 AM

I just spent a while learning all about the Framework and when I started to look at Orchard I was surprised to see it using NHibernate, Autofac and Castle. Are there any future plans to move the project to use more Microsoft software?

Thanks,

Not at the moment, no.

Can we know why did you make this choice?

This might help some.

There was also a thread about trying to pick open source technologies to get more street credit from those developers that avoid pure Microsoft solutions but I couldn't find it.
