Det er ikke alvorligt ment! Little endian pointere fungerer bedre,
hvis du ved at værdien er under 4mia og kun vil læse 32 bit. Intel
har brugt little endian fordi de vistnok mente, at big endian er
en fejl-overførsel fra vores måde at skrive på.

Fra Wikipedia, "Endianness":

The choice of big-endian vs. little-endian was as arbitrary as the
entire concept is, and has been the subject of flame wars.
Emphasizing the futility of this argument, the very terms
big-endian and little-endian were taken from the Big-Endians and
Little-Endians of Jonathan Swift's satiric novel Gulliver's
Travels, where in Lilliput and Blefuscu Gulliver finds two
factions of people in conflict over which end of an egg to crack,
to a nearly religious degree.

I Gulliver's Travels slår de små hinanden ihjel under et stort
søslag p.g.a. endianness :-)
