Should you use Entity Framework?
Entity Framework is a productivity tool. Unless you have a good reason not to (E.G. you are on SQL 2000 or have no time to ramp up on the technology), then use the best tools at your disposal. That being said, I find the concept of Entities to translate very well to the MVC pattern's Model.
