It depends on what the user has though. Sometimes the distro just decides to change stuff around.

So for example you may develop for service (init.d) scripts, and then you get the distro that goes for systemd and your scripts are mostly misplaced.

Or ifconfig/route vs iproute2 and so on.

I guess it can be done but with a banner like "done with OS Y, if your want to port it to the next OS, be welcome to try and contribute".

True, that's why I prefer to stick to Windows for my main development machine, since it has a much longer support and less chaos for those kind of things. Now that I develop web stuff it doesn't matter too much, but back in my ASM / C / C++ days it was a pain to migrate from one machine to another, adding to the pain you already described with Linux distros changing major stuff and breaking software.
