.Net is being launched as server side technology mainly. Mozilla on the other hand does not have serverside components yet (other than web servers of course).
The only thing Mozilla has in common with .Net is that it has a object bus similar to COM. As far as I know it isn't distributed so it is definately different from DCOM. Also, as far as I know, Mozilla does not actually support SOAP or any other RPC/Messaging stuff. Not to mention database and transaction support. The reason for this is that it's a toolkit/framework for building web enabled client applications rather than powering application servers.
