COM is an really Windows specific technology.

The main problem is to have the functionality used via COM interface
available on linux.

Only if that is positively known it is worth trying to make an attemt to
access this component from within mono.

The ole32.dll is native windows. If required the functions have to be
replaced by CIL or native linux.
