A fair number of us. Over a hundred easily.

You don't really want to start this holy war, do you? That aside,
usually big endian is more useful in applications moving networking
type traffic or a fair amount of graphics processing. Little endian
is handy if you are porting applications from Windows or a lot of
your software is written in little endian.

That's my $.02.
