I'm sure plenty do. It's one of many good options, the specifics of which come down to personal tastes.
But count me among the XDm/XDs crowd. I have an XDM45, XDs9 4.0, and XDs45 3.3. I plan to add an XDm 5.25 at some point.
I had a 4" XD45 compact. Really good gun. The additions of the guns mentioned above simply rendered it obsolete for my tastes. 'Obsolete' doesn't mean it's not a viable gun...just unlikely to be called upon given the other options at hand. I'd still trust a version 1.0 Springfield XD to do anything I asked of it, 8 days a week.
