Ubuntu: Will mono be carried forward by upgrading to 12.04?


I plan to upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 when 12.04 is released. I noticed from my previous experience in upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10, that Synaptic, which was dropped in 11.10, was retained on my system presumably because I upgraded from 11.04 (which did have Synaptic by default) and didn't do a new install.

Given that Synaptic was retained, my question relates to mono. If I don't remove mono, will it be carried forward when I upgrade to 12.04 just like Synaptic was?

Edit: Updated information on programs that need mono and how to remove it are here: How to remove Mono?.


If something is installed, it will generally be upgraded to the new version when doing an upgrade. If it's installed and nothing is using it, it may be recommended for removal during the upgrade. The upgrade process will present a list of packages which may be removed if they are no longer needed or supported. When this happens, you will also be given the option to keep or remove those packages. Such should be the case with mono here.
