Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Eeebuntu 3.0, the Ubuntu distribution especially custom-built for the EeePC, just last week saw its third release of the Base edition-- the edition that includes a minimal amount of apps and features for more advanced users to customize. Though nothing's really been said on the matter, I suppose we can expect the Standard and NBR editions to be updated soon as well.

So is it licensed?

I wrote to Ms Moloney on April 28, asking for the same information: "I understand that the terms of the licences to the patents which Microsoft holds on the .NET development platform permit people to obtain a royalty-free, reasonable and non-discriminatory licence to use them. I would be grateful if you let me know exactly how one obtains such a licence."

...

There's a been a deafening silence since then. There the matter stands after nearly a month.

...

To me, it looks this licence is as real as the unicorn. Or maybe Santa Claus.

Hold off a second... Microsoft has opened the standard of both the C# CLR and CIL. None of the GNOME apps that use Mono use any of the .NET components at all, .NET support could be completely stripped from Mono and yet these apps would still work. What's all this babble about a license to use it and patents for including it?
You can hate .NET and Microsoft all you want... but don't extend that hatred to Mono as a whole. It's not applicable.
