In Spanish slang, a "mono" (donkey) is a person that imitates behavior, attitudes, costumes, etc. from another person.

Mono is the same: An imitation of the Microsoft .NET framework rebuilt by an open source community. I think the MS .NET architecture is good, but copying it and moving it into the open source world, is extending the Microsoft domination to the open source community.
