There could be Unix implementations of COM but it is generally a MS 
Windows-only tech.

AFIAK Rev can't do COM, Windows or not, without some fancy C external 

For interprocess communication on Unix one might expect TCP/IP or 
shared memory or pipes and processes. Or CORBA or other "ORB"s (object 
request brokers).

Revolution has TCP/IP and open process support. But not shared memory 
or the others.

Hope this helps,
