I have used SPMetal to create a data context. I can query my lists. The queries return an object of the type of list that they are in. Is it possible to convert this type into a normal SPListItem object?

i think you can call it directly if im correct:

List<SPListItem> items = (from l in list.Items.OfType<SPListItem>() where l["KPI Status"] != null && Convert.ToInt32(l["KPI Status"]) == 1 select l).ToList<SPListItem>();

hope this helps :)
