A personal wiki is a darn good solution. As an extra benefit, it scales nicely in case you decide to publish your notes or to start working with others.

Aside from that, a main point behind Linux and other open source is Freedom. Linux is also based on a philosophy of free software and freedom and it would be stupid to throw that away by sliding mono in through the side door in the form of dependencies or dependencies on dependencies. Microsoft is leveraging Mono to try to take over Gnome and monkeywrench even other open source. It's a bigger problem in the U.S.A. where software patents rule. In places outside the U.S.A. which are free from software patents, it is bad form to push MS patents into software everywhere that users in the U.S.A. cannot have. That's not freedom. So there's more to gain than just saving extra parts (mono) that hog space and need to be maintained.
