As "rizzo" points out, my astonishment re: wrapping a SQL excution inside the new System.Transactions.TransactionScope in .NET 2.0 isn’t 100% a new concept. If you used Enterprise Services (which I never ever had need to so I don’t know jack about them) which is in the namespace SystemEnterpriseServices, you know that some of this ability existed in .NET 1.1 for anyone doing distributed transactions. The new stuff is improved greatly over the old which I can tell from reading the documentation but I can tell even more from reading the excitement of developers like Bill Ryan and Sahil Malik who did use the transactions in Enterprise Services.
