Is there a reason why Devart used 2 different tables to hold user information?

We create the membership tables that correspond to Microsoft's standards. Please specify the exact names of the tables that store the duplicated information or give a more detailed description of the problem. dotConnect for PostgreSQL membership tables can be found here: \Program Files\Devart\dotConnect\PostgreSQL\InstallWebTables.sql .

After some research I found out you guys use the same schema as MSFT.

npgsql implements theirs in a different way that I thought was better so I assumed that was what microsoft was using (duh)

- http://dev.nauck-it.de/aspsqlprovider/b ... Schema.sql (THEY USE JUST ONE TABLE to store all user information which I thought made sense)

Is there any advantage of making this 2 seperate tables?

We use two tables (aspnet_users and aspnet_membership) instead of one (users in npgsql) because some our providers (e.g., Role provider and Profile provider) only need the part of the information, that is stored in the aspnet_users table only, the part of the information from the aspnet_membership table is not used by them. On the other hand, Membership provider needs information from the both tables.
