Mono, which I consider to be a Microsoft virus to infest the GNU/Linux
environment with .NET technology, is deep integrated into the Gnome
desktop environment, which is the standard in Ubuntu.
Fortunately I came across Reconstructor, which is a neat GUI to create
your own Ubuntu spin off. You have the option to disable or enable
(un)wanted repositories, choose your preferred bootsplash, splashscreen,
theme, iconset, wallpaper etc.
I "created" a spin off, which I call Nomo GNU+Linux. Nomo == No Mono and
is inspired by a bitmap by Roy Schestowitz of BoycottNovell. It's the
bitmap which is included in this article.
