[Gary Huff] "I think he's more comparing Windows to Linux. My response is to something else entirely."

I was, but I think Michael's point still stands. Windows is a more stable development platform than Mac OS X. Apple changes a lot very quickly and very often. It's not so easy for developers to support both the current releases and previous/legacy/stable/whatever releases.

Premiere Pro CC 2015, for example, supports Windows 7 (SP1), Windows 8, and Windows 10 -- all the way back to March of 2010. It supports only Mac OS X 10.9 and 10.10 -- only back to October of 2013.

Ultimately, if you want to keep current and your computer is not a single-app appliance, I don't see how it's feasible to stay locked on one version of OS X.
