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.
