Linq2Sql was DOA, it's a turd, just turf it :)
OpenAccess has a linq2sql->openaccess converter http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/10-10-14/converting-l2s-model-to-openaccess-domain-model.aspx use that, then you can use the OpenAccess datasource. Openaccess is both free and lightyears ahead of L2Sql. Code-wise, it's all just Linq too, so not a heck of a lot of difference.
Or easier just use sitefinity thunder to create a new custom widget, and do all the binding and stuff in code to your old L2S model.
