COM is language indpendent
COM servers may be written with a different language and an entirely different operating system. COM objects have the capability of being remotely accessible. That means they may be in a different thread, process, or even on a different computer.

The other computer may even be running under a different operating system. There needs to be a good way to transmit parameters over the network to objects on other machines. This problem is solved by creating a new way to carefully specify the interface between the client and server.

There is also a new compiler called MIDL (Microsoft® Interface Definition Language). This compiler makes it possible to generically specify the interface between the server and client. MIDL defines COM objects, interfaces, methods and parameters.
A good beginning makes a good ending
