"OLE, short for Object Linking and Embedding is the old name for ActiveX, a marketing buzzword invented in the days when Microsoft was more afraid of Netscape than of the Department of Justice. Nowadays, you are more likely to hear the term COM or COM+ [Component Object Model] describing those technologies that are part of or implemented by OLE." - Dan Appleman : Dan Appleman's Win32 API Puzzle Book and Tutorial for Visual Basic Programmers
So if anyone ever asks you if you know ActiveX, then asks you if you know OLE, then asks you if you know COM/COM+... you know they don't know what they are talking about and the response should be "They three are different names for the SAME technology."
