Yes, what you've said sounds about right. I'm no expert - I'm not even a programmer (aside from a little VBA and Perl, and a few university courses).

MS COM, XPCOM, CORBA etc aren't all equivalent, but basically they're all concerned with objects talking to each other. The IBM articles <http://www-106.ibm.com/de…ces/library/co-xpcom.html> seems to give a good outline of what the differences are.
