I'm one of these crazy people that thinks the .41 mag is better than the 44. I like the .44 too, just not as much as the 41. It has nothing to do with taking the road less traveled.
20, you probably are, but there are more of us in the same boat. The only advantage for most tasks in the .44 is the variety of ammo and the shorty loads in the form of 44 Special and Russian. Sticking to handloads, I would never miss my .44 Mag Revolver.
