Can I use .NET 3.5 language features in SharePoint 2007.
I want to use LINQ on an in memory collection (SPListItemCollection for example). I want to write extension methods. Can I do this with SharePoint 2007? I am not expecting to be able to use LINQ to SharePoint or other SharePoint 2010 features just the language features of C# 3.5. Does the server need special configuration, web.config changes. I need to target my project that builds my assembly to 3.5 and my project references?
