I imagine that would be because MD on Windows uses the .NET compiler
by default, so because you're targetting 2.0, it's using the .NET 2.0

mcs/gmcs allows use of some features from future versions of the
language,as long as they don't require the newer framework features.
You can disable thsi by setting a specific languag version.
