In word I guess I would have to say yes.
It looks like .NET is whole sutie of product with .NET My Service being their XML Web Service product? But they also seem to have many other tools for building web services. I must admit I am not very familiar with .NET.
Check out the .NET home page http://www.microsoft.com/net/default.asp it may be helpful

The .NET framework offers an common API to all .NET programming languages. Think of the framework like the Java APIs themselves.
For example, System.Data.* is the namespace for assemblies dealing with database and datastore access. And there is also the webservices APIs exposed by System.Web.Services.*. The webservices APIs are partitioned to support
UDDI or other protocols (System.Web.Services.Discovery) and
description (System.Web.Services.Description). .NET remoting is also available in the framework to provide an RMI clone workable only in .NET/.NET communications.

I think Sun is also going to use WebServices as well. It may be easier for Sun to market then Microsoft as it is already has J2EE market. All Sun needs to do is include WebServices as part of J2EE in the next release and that's it.
