There are several ppl using it day by day. Most of them come from the old Commodore Amiga scene.
I use it since 2002 for many tasks, but yet not for everything. I guess it is an OS you either *love* or guess its just useles and horribly obsolete.
*I* love it.
If you want to know more just check the following sites:

Several? We are almost 2000 users, including those using MorphOS for ancient Classic Amigas enhanced with PPC upgrade cards, and userbase it is slowly but steady increasing.

(and about 2000 users I am counting approximatively by defect numbering)...

Well, I do. At home I use it 99% of the time using my PC. The other 1% MacOS-X is used. Though other OSes are installed too on my system (cos of curiosity).
If you have some questions about it, don#t hesitate to ask me...
