DCOM = distributed COM.
Basically COM over a network. You can invoke objects on other machines.

MTS = Microsoft Transaction Server (part of Microsoft Back Office)
You write COM components, and MTS provides an environment for them to live in.  The advantage is that MTS provides a lot of the "supporting" infra-structure (especially for database applications) that is usually needed for large complex software systems.  The disadvantage is that your users need to have MTS on their NT server(s)

Using MTS is optional (you can happily write COM, DCOM and Database apps without ever using MTS if you want)
