The Mono installer does not remove old versions any more.

I know that some users wanted to keep old versions around for testing etc. but the vast majority of users don't care (or know) about having old Mono runtimes installed and for them this just wastes disk space.

I was able to free up 1.7 GB by manually removing Mono 3.0.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 2.10.9.

This has been fixed a long time ago.
