Can LINQ be used with VS2005 & 2.0?

I like the idea of LINQ but don't have the resources for Orcas at this time
and know little about the requirements for LINQ.
Anybody want to give me a quick earful?

Most of LINQ relies on types which aren't available in .NET 2.0.

You can find a very old preview, if still available, that worked with Visual
Studio 2005. It is old enough that things have changed and it had very
little stuff in it. I would recommend the newer version with Orcas (Visual
Studio 2008), which you can download as a VPC and then download the free
Virtual PC 2007 product from MS downloads (www.microsoft.com/downloads). it
will run slower than a full PC implementation, but much safer. If you do not
download the Team Foundation Server version, it is much faster.

You're right but I don't have the resources. So what can I install? 3.0 or
3.5 or what? Then what is it that I can't do in VS2005? Don't the projects
show up but have to be compiled from the command line when using VS2005? I
thought thats the way it is but haven't kept up and now have to delve back
in. I think I should go read the Overview...
