I know Sun ONE is Sun's answer to .NET, but is anyone working on a project similar to Mono but in Java? If Mono and Java got together and embraced and extended .NET, maybe we can take .NET away from Microsoft....

Well the "web services" part of dotNET is just a "capability"
of the framework. I think what's more core in dotNET is the
CLR (ala JVM), language support targetting the IL (intermediate language) and the seamless interoperability between COM world and managed code in the .NET world.
Writing a Java->IL converter is possible - so long as you can map
Java constructs to .NET framework constructs. J# from Microsoft
is already doing it. See http://www.infoworld.com/articles/tc/xml/01/11/05/011105tcjsharp.xml .

Hi Pho Tek,
So which do you think it is better?? Sun one or DotNet?
I know it is a big question. But in your opinion what do
you think? I have no knowledge on DotNet but would really
like to hear a fellow rancher's opinion.
thanks.
