As a Solaris/Windows/Linux admin, I can tell you that this happens ALL THE TIME for LOTS OF SOFTWARE with pretty much every flavour of operating system. Bleeding edge software (engineering tools to games) is generally written on the latest version of an OS.

It would make my life easier if we could stick with the same version of an OS for all machines for years at a time, but it ain't gonna happen unless you also can stick with old software. It's just a fact of life...
