I use ODS for all my DB needs and am considering using LDS instead. However, in LDS, I don’t see any way to add methods apart from them being Stored Procedures. Using SPs for trivial things (like checking to see if a record exists) might be an overkill. Of course, I can use SQL like link statements in my code but then I am peppering my code. What I really liked about using ODS is that even if I use SQL statements, I am not really peppering my code. The ODS wizard lets me build my SQL statements and I just have to use the method in my code thru TableAdapters. All my SQL statements stay neat and ridy in one place.

It would be so cool if a similar functionality was available in LDS.
