3 Ways to Write a Query in NHibernate

Getting started with NHibernate and NHibernate Linq, I compared the various ways to write a database query in that framework.

I came up with the following alternatives:

using NHibernate criteria:

var foos = 

using NHibernate Linq:

var foos = 
  session.Linq<Foo>().OrderBy(f => f.Id);

using NHibernate Linq with Linq syntax:

var foos = 
  from foo in session.Linq<Foo>() 
  orderby foo.Id 
  select foo;

All 3 statements actually generate the same SELECT statement. I guess I prefer the 2nd version.
