COM 101: A Quick Primer - Conclusion
(Page 4 of 4 )

In this article I have covered the basics and fundamentals of COM to some extent. If you are a developer on the Windows platform (especially if you are - or plan to - develop Windows DNA, Java or .NET applications) then you can't live with knowing what COM is.

This technology has gained a lot of popularity over the years. If you search the Internet you could actually find freelance programmers creating components and selling them online. Even all of the Microsoft Office products use COM to a very great extent.
