Why is ADO.Net Data Service missing in VS2010?

Where is the ADO.Net Data Service Item in VS2010?

ADO.Net Data Service is missing in Visual Studio 2010!!!!!

If you have been using VS2010 for a while and have wondered where the ADO.Net Data Service item is then here it is.

The ADO.Net Data Service Item we used in VS2008 has been replaced by the WCF Data Service.

So if you are using VS2010 do not look for ADO.Net Data Service but look for WCF Data Service under Web. View image below.

 

Hope that helps solve some headaches as it did to me.
