Where the heck are Entity Framework samples?

Ok, Entity Framework is still to be released, but where the heck are EF samples? Take Following Real-World ASP.NET MVC Projects: Linq to SQL. Take Dynamic Data Controls: easily bindable with Linq To SQL, couldn't hook them up with EF. Most bloggers samples: Linq To SQL. Take Microsoft demoware apps: Linq To SQL. Can anyone point me to some nice EF samples other then Astoria?

First of all, let me thank you for the samples links. My point here is: why aren't we finding more real world samples about EF? Why is Linq to SQL much sexier to present? Is it just because it as shipped? Or simplicity is a major asset on demos? And if so, wouldn't future application that should be written over EF just use Linq to SQL? Where are the EF based apps?
