What are .net interop assemblies for?  Is .net somehow making an interface to COM objects so .net can interface with the COM objects?

.NET Framework applications will eventually replace those developed with COM. Until then, you may need to use or create COM objects with Visual Studio. Interoperability with COM, or COM interop, enables you to use existing COM objects while transitioning to the .NET Framework at your own pace.

By using the .NET Framework to create COM components, you can use registration-free COM interop. This lets you control which DLL version is activated when more than one version is installed on a computer, and lets end users use XCOPY or FTP to copy your application to an appropriate directory on their computer where it can be run.

>>>>    Interop assemblies are .NET Framework assemblies that act as a bridge between managed and unmanaged code, mapping COM object members to equivalent .NET Framework managed members.
