Supporting COUNT in LINQ

Author Name: ERIK AARSLEW-JENSEN

I was very disappointed to see that you didn't include any of the aggregate functions, supported by FetchXML, in your LINQ provider. When working on very large datasets, counting records by retrieving the entire datatable is not a feasible option.

Given the fact that multiple ISV vendors figured out how to convert a standard FetchXML statement to a FetchSML count statement i MS CRM 4.0 in order to add custom counters to views, I don't quite understand the design decision, not to include the full set of features exposed by FetchXML in the CRM 2011 LINQ provider.
