You're not scrolling through open apps, you are scrolling through app history. Yes one or two might be suspended, but apps are closed as memory is needed. (Some, like Pandora, might even still be playing audio.) Open Angry Birds, click the home button, open mail. Click the home button, then click AB icon. It resumes from where it left off. No need to double click. Now if you were to open the web browser, and open several tabs, when you returned to AB, you would see that the OS had totally closed it, no matter where you started it from.

If you are referring to the Touch, it because some want PDA functionality and don't need or want a smartphone and the data plan that comes with it. They also like to view videos and like the larger 32 and 64 gigs of flash memory.

I also use it when working to listen to podcast with a single earbud.
I've known two people with the classic. They like to take everything with them. However, it's a hassle trying to navigate through that much content. Classics are also guaranteed to break if you drop them.
I finally went from five to four phones on my plan. Four phones with data plans isn't cheap. If you're on my plan and want data, get a job and get your own plan. (Which is why I am done to four )
