I don't want to turn this into an anti-VB rant, but VB was to blame for a lot of COM problems and a fair bit of the bad rep that COM got. One of the key tenets of COM development was that you never broke the interface - if you wanted to add new features or drop a parameter in a COM method, you defined a new interface and worked with that. Unfortunately, legacy VB borked this completely up as the designers decided they knew better what people wanted out of COM. This was an endless source of frustration for me, that I'd be having to code against an ever shifting target from my nice ATL project because someone forgot to set something in a project dialog that meant a new GUID was generated on every build.
