​While that may be true immediately upon release, it doesn't remain that
way for very long.​ Distributions like openSUSE Tumbleweed, Arch, and
distributions that release at the same time or after we do (upcoming Mageia
6, Ubuntu 15.10, etc.) would have compatibility with us.

We shouldn't make things worse for people if we don't have to.
