What is LINQ to XML?

LINQ to XML is a built-in LINQ data provider that is implemented within the "System.Xml.Linq" namespace in .NET 3.5.

LINQ to XML provides a clean programming model that enables you to read, construct and write XML data.  You can use LINQ to XML to perform LINQ queries over XML that you retrieve from the file-system, from a remote HTTP URL or web-service, or from any in-memory XML content. 

LINQ to XML provides much richer (and easier) querying and data shaping support than the low-level XmlReader/XmlWriter API in .NET today.  It also ends up being much more efficient (and uses much less memory) than the DOM API that XmlDocument provides.

How would you incorporate a where clause into the subquery such that you only retrieve those items with a particular TAG value?
