I certainly used to use it, but even seeing the term here was more
like a blast from the past than anything else. I remember selecting
OLE as an option when embedding Office files. Is it possible that I
used it with QuarkXpress, lo these many years ago? Lost in time, like
tears in rain.

Also perhaps relevant, when I searched for "using OLE", the page
included "People also ask: What do you mean by OLE?"
