One thing is that I can download Kubuntu or Xubuntu and get a fully functional fast or faster desktop without any mono dependencies or libraries installed by default.

Ubuntu still bundles Mono and it's likely that you will see it installed at some point on your system. Indeed, Mark Shuttleworth has come out and said they see no problem with it.

Still, "Mono doesn't get installed on your system!" isn't a reason to start using Ubuntu.
