Datasmith is a .NET based tool to write SQL and LInQ statements against any of your data sources.
It is built on traditional Windows Forms technology and does not require addons besides .NET runtime.
However you will still require providers for specific datasources which could be proprietary in nature.
Otherwise standard ODBC would suffice in many occasions.
It is tested to work with RDBMS data, Flat file data, Dynamic data like Task Manager(LInQ), Active Directory, .NET Namespaces, System Resources, etc.
A LInQ query against your Data Source will also transliterate into Lambda expression, and Native SQL (Any DB... Ok).
