NT-based versions, so NT 4.0 (maybe, I'm not entirely sure), Windows
2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.

Not supported is Windows 95, 98, and ME, since Mono uses the Unicode
APIs extensively and Windows 9x doesn't support these.  In theory you
could use the Microsoft Layer for Unicode to build Mono and support 9x,
but I don't believe any of the currently built binaries do this.
