Interesting - I'm not sure I understand why?
(The SOC project I put together when I was tinkering with this stuff last year works just fine on a Xilinx-based board - the EMS11-* targets for this project are Spartan-6 based if memory serves correctly. https://github.com/robinsonb5/TG68_MiniSOC )

Logic Analyzer may be important factor but not sure if it was most important one... I think it is more related to some experience (university education?) and availability for free cores.
True - I hadn't considered which tools are used in education, and that will indeed be a huge factor - whichever tools you learn first will generally be the ones you find most comfortable.
