Sure. Here are some:
1. It was written by SGI, so most distros don't have internal resources to support it. So, they ship other FSes as default.
2. Other FSes were historically the default, so upgrading to XFS is not that straightforward.
3. Some people unjustly accused this FS of loosing data, so it is taking a long time for the FS to get its reputation back. Even if all those that did the accusing published public retractions of their unfounded accusations, it would take a long time.
