Yes, they are different. The System.Web.Services.Discovery namespace
implements the MS's DISCO technology, which is much simpler than UDDI. A
DISCO document is basically a listing of wsdl documents. MS.NET provides
some tools (disco.exe and wsdl.exe) which can be used to generate client
web service proxies for accessing the services listed in a disco file.
Work on DISCO is currently in progress.

This article talks about DISCO and UDDI:

Well, there isn't any official Mono view. In my opinion we should
provide disco support because:
1) we want to be compatible with MS.NET.
2) provides a discovery mechanism that albeit simple, can be very useful
in many scenarios
3) it is easy to implement.

Right now there are no plans regarding UDDI tools/services.
