[Mono-list] n00b porting first application to Mono/Linux

It looks like you are targeting .Net 4.0, but your Mono does not support 
4.0.  (Only the SVN version of Mono supports 4.0.)

So Mono is trying to run your program on 1.1, but you need at least 2.0 
for your application to work.

Re-compile your application for 2.0, 3.0, or 3.5, copy it over again, 
and then try to run it.

(Right-click->Properties in VS2010 on your project, and change the 
"Target Framework".)
