There is a reason that despite Linux being around forever, being free, having the largest number of people working on it, and almost every computer enthusiast pining to use it, etc, that no one actually does
use it. No one is willing to invest the time and money required to properly develop it without some form of compensation. The only way to solve that problem is to tie your development to a company that is willing to fund it, and has plans to profit off it.
Um....What? You realize that Linux runs the vast majority of hardware in this world, thus being used by pretty much everyone either directly or indirectly? Further, if you're using Android you're using Linux (though not GNU/Linux like the PC uses). Plenty of companies fund or develop for it (even including MS). You need to specify the difference between Linux and desktop distros that use the Linux kernel.

How would that be possible? The source code isn't public and MS would sue the living crap out of anyone that even tried to make this happen. And as far as MS is concerned they have their consoles and making a specialized version of Windows for gaming would be "too costly and risky"; just look at WinRT.

The typical way all Corporates operate in the World today.
Hey, I think you need to attend one of those meetings. Trust me, no one asks accountants for those kinds of ideas because we're usually terrible at coming up with them. The closest we get to screwing users over is when we recommend cost cutting techniques. Its the marketing and business analysts/consultants that come up with these bad business strategies. I shudder whenever they speak at a meeting because these are the same guys who try to recognize revenues improperly just to get even the smallest bonus/perk (like $1k) and call you the bad guy for keeping the company from getting lax on such issues.

On the other hand, if you don't
want a world without money, please explain your disdain for people who are better at money than you are (you know, those corporations and governments that you yourself present as experts in the field).
One can have disdain for people who "are better at money" because they exploit others or abuse systems to give themselves unfair advantages or remove the opportunities they used to get to where they are. I mean isn't that why we dislike athletes who dope? And also there's the issue of at what point does the hoarding of wealth actually have a negative effect on others.
