Remote Servers

Namespace: WIN_COM_API

What of Remote Servers, then?
Starting in SQLServer version 7, remote servers are a legacy feature, supported for backward compatibility only. Remote servers can connect only to other SQL Server servers (i.e. not Oracle).
What is it that replaced Remote Servers in v7? (ie: what's the right way to do it?)
The new feature in SQL Server that allows access to remote data sources is called Linked Servers.
