Putting it all Together with a Simple RSS Feed Reader

The code snippets I've walked through above demonstrate how you can easily write LINQ to XML code to retrieve a list of RSS feeds from a local XML file, and how to remotely query an RSS feed to retrieve an individual feed's details and individual item post contents.  I could obviously then take the resulting feed contents and data-bind it to a ASP.NET GridView or ListView control to provide a nice view of the blog feed:

I've built a simple sample application that puts all of these snippets together to deliver a simple RSS Reader with LINQ to XML and the new <asp:ListView> control.  You can download it here.  Included in the download is both a VB and C# version of the application.
