I would venture a guess it was because Apple didn't break random things from release to release for their users, as often as others did.
PS. I personally didn't switch (a bit more tolerant to breakage + really don't like OS X). But, you know what - Gnome 3 usability regressions did give me a moment of pause. Luckily I can still run mutter in fallback mode, the combo that works sufficiently "normal".
