I serialize, deserialize and sometimes compress an xml file (of objects) when a (personal) data base is just not justified.

I would consider 2,000 xml records as trivial. I have one app with 20,000 xml "book passages" that (all) get deserialized to memory from a compressed resource (no lag).

LINQ does a fine job querying.

When so inclined, replace the serialize to XML with a "DB save / restore".

Use Xml NotePad for viewing (complex) xml.
