3. Inexpensive software.
4. It works.
Precisely - all the above.
Despite Linux distributions (mostly) having no cost whatever, the sheer multitude of distributions has worked against Linux as a whole and prevented the stabilizing factor in terms of hardware support necessary to displace Windows in terms of desktops. It really isn't helping any to find Windows becoming quite capable of taking on (if not dethroning) not merely Linux distributions, but UNIX, when it comes to a real alternative to the mainframe - clustering. Considering that I came to PCs *from* mainframes - and IBM mainframes at that - the reality that a Windows-based mainframe-equivalent is not only possible today, but PRACTICAL today, simply boggles.

Monopoly isn't available on other operating systems?
Only for iOS and Android currently - there is no current version of Monopoly for OS X.
