Steam heat is popular up north

I get emails with various questions to test knowledge - some are interesting such as this one. I guessed (correctly) that in Iceland steam heat is very popular. Still somewhat surprised, as I thought steam heat was no longer used for the most part.

An explanation why:

    Location,location, location.
    Iceland gets a free energy advantage over other countries.
    Im jealous.

    Yes, must be nice! Interesting and ironic that the article mentions (what I infer) there may not be a need for home hot water heaters - go figure, in Iceland.

    I assume it is district steam produced by the springs.

    I don't see what the big deal is about that nail clipper. Looks like every one I've ever seen.
