Microsoft products still make use of these. If you are developing something that is interconnected for example with office products than chances are good that you have to mess with COM as some programming interfaces of these products are exposed with COM. Sometimes interconnection between 2 softwares written in different languages is the easiest via COM if both language compilers have COM support (this is also dependent on the kind of interconnection - its quite rare when a pipe or loopback socket isn't enough). In my opinion if you are developing your own software then the best is to avoid COM if possible. Keep it simple. Use a technology/library only if it makes your job easier or if it is explicitly requested by your client. Don't use something "just because" its a fashion or because it is used by another product. It can be possible that a famous product uses technology X but the architects are cursing the day of choosing that technology and today they simply cant afford (time/$) getting rid of it. Before you start using something do some research and compare different solutions on a simple example program. Investing the time in this pays off in the long run especially in case of a bigger project.
