Well, as a geek born in the 90's I'd like to understand why people still use Amigas...

If it's just for the coolness I can easily appreciate it, hell, I ran Windows 3.11 for a few months on my Core 2 Quad as my primary OS just because I could, but otherwise are there any significant applications or niches Amiga OS fills that aren't quite addressed by modern Unix or Windows operating systems?

As a Brazilian living in Rio myself, I agree with you.

But I see matters even simplier:

USAÂhad the Olympics 4 times already. Wouldn't be them.
London's already in Europe and it's the next one. This vettoes Madrid.
Rio de Janeiro is the most beutiful city on Earth. Politically, it's good, 'cause we need one in South America (and Africa, for that matter). Also, Tokyo already had Olympics there.
