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

Nice try, but "mono" actually means "monkey".

Mono is the same: An imitation of the Microsoft .NET framework rebuilt by an open source community.

No, it's mostly an implementation of a standard. I am an anti-Microsoft guy, sometimes to the point of being ridiculous, but I don't think there is anything wrong with Mono. On the contrary, I think it is a great effort. Kudos to Miguel.
