Well for me, it's because the Amiga has always had the most elegant/intuitive OS that, so far, has been programmed, IMHO.
It's just a pity that most people of the era that it was programmed/released in remember it for just a gaming system, rather than looking into the useability of the OS itself.
Probably most of us who still use the Amiga, and other variants like MorphOS really appreciated what it is capable of, as it is the first truly multi-tasking OS, that actually 'does what it says on the tin' and have loved using it..
I just love the elegance and efficiency you find in AmigaOS/MorphOS everywhere under the hood, I've grown to it and want to continue using computers that way. No other system gives me such joy to use them. I just love the details in general usability (from keyboard controls to window handling), features in shell, ARexx connectibility with almost all programs, system structure and expandibility, MUI, etc.
MorphOS, of course, takes these into whole new level and continues improving things. Now it would be quite hard to go back to AmigaOS too, but luckily I don't have any need for it either :)
