Only in some platforms, because the release pace of an OS tends to be much 
slower. The example of QNX is 6.5 version published on 2010, with 6.6 released 
on 2014. Qt releases are a lot faster.

Now Microsoft and Apple are releasing faster as well, but remember how long XP 
was supported and it had a non negligible market share that app developers had 
to target.
