Why should I use MorphOS

I think about this every time there is a MorphOS story. I used and developed for the Amiga back in the day, but I still have yet to hear a compelling reason why I should use MorphOS.

The most common I hear is how well it runs on resource limited hardware, but the list of that hardware is quite small. Most of it is years old and unsupported, and will become increasingly hard to replace.

We have had 40 some odd years of portable operating systems, and MorphOS is tied to a specific CPU architecture. Because I could at least see some argument if I could run this supposedly lithe OS on my desktop system.

No one has pointed to a compelling app that only runs on MorphOS, or how I can somehow be more productive.

So, MorphOS fans, I really want to know: Why should I use it? Why should I care?

And for bonus points: Please explain why their variable pricing structure is a good thing.
