Persistence Ignorance important in the .NET-world now?

The other day I was googling and, to my surprise, came across quite a lot about Persistence Ignorance. That "property" seems to have grown in importance and my guess is that LINQ to SQL is the driving force.

To develop the subject of this post, I think that before too long there will be lots of attempts with DDD in the .NET-world compared with how it is today. We'll see.
