Me either. I think it comes from the fact that Lion introduced a few new user conventions that people didn't like (like autosave -- [facepalm]). But any issues Lion had were completely ironed out by the time Mountain Lion came around. Mavericks has only had one serious issue -- if you're using Gmail through Mail, the first two releases were pretty rough.

Apart from that, I'd have said that Mavericks is the best OS release ever. People have very short memories about the anxiety and wailing and gnashing of teeth they all went through when Snow Leopard came out -- the one many of these same people now remember fondly as "the best."
