From the perspective of a customer, I really think that the first thing you guys need to do is provide a comparison of DO4 with NHibernate (including its plugins).

In fact, Alex, I'd strongly suggest that you get one up ASAP, even a limited one, and expand it into a full comparison over time.

I've been talking to several ISV's and startups and pitching DO4 to them... there really needs to be a NHibernate comparison to get them to jump aboard.

Fully agree with you - this will be done.

The article publication is delayed, but I can share an early link for feature-based ORM comparison we're working on:

The most comprehensive feature-based ORM comparison ever :)

The document is a bit incomplete yet; there can be some mistakes (it wasn't checked by community yet). But it is quite comprehensive (~ 270 features).

A copy of this document is edited by participants, so shortly there should be its version including all the tools we tested.

Don't forget to check "Remarks" & "Sources" sheets.

Btw, this explains why there is still no article - I want to publish a really good one.

Forgot to add: document describing the features will appear soon as well (likely, description will be a part of comparison).

Also, conceptual comparison is currently missing. It will be added to the document as well.
