Full Joins in Linq

    In my humble in opinion, Linq needs better outer join support.  See this stackoverflow thread on how to perform a full join.

    Do I stand alone?  Does anyone else find this very limiting?

    Nowadays I pretty much use LinqPad and only SSMS and SQL when I have to.  Linq is definitely not an improvement with outer joins.  For most everything else I do, Linq is more efficient to develop.

    That's kind of crazy, how can something so simple be so complicated?

    something like this:

    select * from a full outer join b on a.id = b.id

    turns into a wall of seemingly impenetrable logic.

    Would the zip extension method work for this?
