Colors are bad for the blind! ;-)
Maybe just improve the Mono logo a little - it looks more like a
scary, edgy monster (or an Easter Island Moai) than a sympathetic,
four-handed shimpanzee or other monkey. Unlike the blogs icon.
The non-Spanish-speaking don't know to expect a monkey, just as there
is no obvious way to tell why MySQL would be a dolphin or PostgreSQL
an elephant; besides, internationally, Mono sounds like the opposite
of stereo and thus unfortunately brings up audio-related search
results even with stereo excluded...
