Signum Framework is the new Open Source framework from Signum Software for writing data-centric applications over the latest Microsoft technologies: LINQ, WPF, ASP.Net MVC.
It provides a consistent model for N-layer architectures by moving the entities to the very center of your solution using Signum.Entities.
Our cutting-edge ORM, Signum.Engine, is *the first to implement a full_ LINQ Provider outside of Microsoft offices
Signum.Windows dramatically simplifies giving a WPF user interface to your entities. Also, Signum.Web an ASP.Net MVC version of the same idea is around the corner.

*Schema generation (and sync)
