COM stands for Component Object Model. It''s a binary standard for reusable object. I guess you already heard of stuff like ActiveX COntrols and OLE Containers, they base on COM. DCOM means distributed COM. This means accessing COM objects over a network

If your interested in DCOM, then you may like to know that COM objects written to use MTS (Microsoft Transaction Server) as part of an IIS (Internet Information Server) app, combined with DCOM and COM pretty much make up COM+ for Win2K. And if that doesn''t make your COM knowledge feel a little bit worthless then, from what I''ve been told .NET is pretty much going to make COM redundant.

Not that I want to scare you or anything.
