    You might try a more general GIS forum or something for ESRI.. here's one:

    thanks eric. i am looking through the user forums on esri's site. it seems mapobjects will satisfy all the functionality that my application needs , i need not go into the extensive arcobjects.

    As long as you're here, have you looked into MapPoint?

    Also, the mapping web services are pretty neat..

    Map Object Vs Arc Objects

    Map Object is purely to develop a stand-alone GIS application. But Arc object is for customizing and to create additional functional tools for Arc Info. If you can impart some more information for what you are looking at, I can give you better Idea.
