I presume that all users of Stata have the general intelligence to comprehend phrases like "Windows only" and "Stata 9.2 for Windows" as pertaining to the common usage of that word. After all, if you look at commercial software online or at the store, it is common to see phrases like 'requires Windows', 'requires Mac OS X', etc. I don't think I need to insult users' intelligence by stating "Microsoft Windows (TM)". I have never known a Mac OS user to consider that her machine has 'Windows' unless she is running Boot Camp, Parallels, VMWare Fusion or one of the other tools that allow Apple hardware to run that OS from Microsoft.
