[Mono-list] Is still Mono multiplatform?

I've downloaded testy and tried to run it on windows, it immediately crashes
out and I get the option to load it in the vs2010 debugger.

The exception is:

Could not load file or assembly 'Mono.Posix, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=0738eb9f132ed756' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot
find the file specified.

So your program depends on an assembly you've not shipped and that isn't part
of .Net.

Mono.Posix does compile for windows, It just won't do everything it does on
posix platforms.

Are the sources for testy public?
