Big or little endian

Q: Big or little endian, which is best?

A: The answer depends on if you are focusing on the characters in the text (LTR-data) or the bits in the number (RTL-data):

At the core of the problem is that:

Assuming you have a binary number and some text in the memory like this: (dumped LTR)

0 1 2 3 4 5
513 (0x0201) (0b0000001000000001) "a" "b" "c" "d"


Which of course also can be dumped RTL:

5 4 3 2 1 0
"d" "c" "b" "a" 513 (0x0201) (0b0000001000000001)


Anyone focusing on the character-order in the text will prefer LTR and big-endian.

Anyone focusing on the bit-order of the number will prefer RTL and little-endian.
