>> tell me what Corba is all about
I think you have to buy a book to get an full answer to that question ...
CORBA(common object request broker architecture) is a distributed object model, simpler: CORBA is the architecture of 'how to transfer objects over networks'.

>>two other than having different manufacturesrs
CORBA itself has no manufacturesrs. CORBA is the pardigm, it has serveral manufacturesrs( there are free CORBA implementations available: http://www.wiwi.hu-berlin.de/~rhoppe/corba/freeORB.html )
The CORBA standard is specified by the Object Management Group (http://www.omg.org/ look there for detailed specifications)

>> do you think it would help me.
sure :)  ... CORBA is an open standard, portable to diffrent platforms and programming languages ... so you are independent from microsoft

for detailed comparision of DCOM, CORBA, Java RMI look at
