At the Tomb of the IUnknown Interface [ via Sam Gentile's Weblog ] Verity Stob says Bye-Bye to COM in this as usual great article. British Programing Humor at its best. Sam is singing "Bye Bye Miss American Pie". Well, I am not sure if I can sing that song or not. I am still coding ASP based applications and most of the times COM/COM+ is what constitutes the middleware. There's some more time for me to evolve doing VB.Net/ASP.Net. But yes, I've started humming the chorus part:
So, bye-bye, Miss American Pie drove my chevy to the levee but the levee was dry, and them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.
