That and the fact is it's very fast and responsive, does what I need from a computer, I know how (a lot more than Linux) it works so I can fix it if needed/adjust it to suit my preferences.

Others Milage may vary etc. etc, and it's not for everyone. But what else do you want from an OS anyway?

You know what's the best part? Your MorphOS machine can't really handle the yt video you linked to, certainly not with full features/controls and in full quality.
(also, lazy, so some of my posts from http://www.osnews.com/comments/26029 )
