It's difficult to play Mornington Crescent here with any certainty because there are so many versions of the game. Admittedly, they all have the same basic idea, but really, we'd need to know exactly which set of rules we're meant to use.

If you're asking about the two different filesystems referenced, no, Windows users get that too.
