Scott Kuhl notes an article written by Brian Noyes on using typed datasets in VS 2005 via the Dataset Designer.  Now kudos to Brian for really running through all the right arguments for datasets vs. custom business objects.  I am a bit of a custom object berserker and wouldn't allow the dataset to creep into my other layers.  But again Brian at least provides commentary on this.

Brian starts out by discussing that you can use this to create your own data access layer.  My question is why wouldn't you just use the Data Access Application Block from the Enterprise Library?  Why spin your own?  As Brian points out this can be a very error prone endeavor, so why re-invent this complicated wheel?
