    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering what the difference between classes and
    assemblies are in .NET. Is an assembly a .DLL in the COM
    sense? Or are they uncomparable? And is a class an object
    in .NET? Someone please clarify this up for me. Thanks!

    Assembly contains one or more classes and is usually compiled into a DLL.
    Object is an instance of a class.
