You need Windows if you want to develop the class libraries (as the
compiler can not compile the corlib yet). 

If you are not working on the corlib, then just get the
`mono-0.10.tar.gz' for Linux.  We have included binaries that will help
you bootstrap.

Also, I need to update the Web site, as I forgot to make these changes.
