COM is native code, eg. machine code that accesses OS-specific functions 
(eg. from the Win32 API). This means to run COM controls, you'd have to 
emulate the entire Windows API, which is way outside the scope of Mono.

If you want to run COM components on your Linux system, check out the 
Wine project.

I don't know whether you can install .NET on Wine or if it's possible to 
access a COM control using the Wine functions from within Mono, though. 
Maybe someone else on the list knows this?
