That's nonsense; code is static.


I think the point of that quote is that

a) sourcecode lives or dies on how well it can be maintained and no matter how judicious you are, sometimes, code has maintenance issues and after 6 months or a year you may not know what you did.

b) software doesn't age well. demands changes quickly in the industry, with hardware changes and OS changes and the like not to mention just feature adds, the average software to be competitive needs to put out new versions regularly.

Yes, but that's not the point of my statement. Visual Studio Extensibility interfaces are not Windows, and they don't need to be COM.
