If you do, good for you. But if your computing needs are so little, are you going to pay 90 for that OS?

Because it is their choice. I could do everything I need to do on an Amiga so long as it had an SSH client and a browser. Vista and OS X are bloated beyond reason. Linux is getting there, too.

Some people want a small lightweight OS with low system requirements. Computing has gotten out of hand on the workstation level.

No, it's not this the real reason. They pay that much for passion. You can almost get a whole second hand computer with that money, some orders of magnitude faster than an Amiga, and including a Windows license.

With a bit of luck you can get an old computer for free, and run some free OS.

No, you pay 90 euro because you love the Amiga brand.
