It's very much in the users hands. Generally, a release (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, RHEL) sticks to the version for the OS. In Ubuntu and Debian, if you have backports enabled, it will grab newer versions of the software if it has been vetted stable by the OS team. Or you can add a developer PPA and grab the newest releases as they come. In Fedora you have the option to either add a seperate repo to yum (I've got a couple of repos on Fedora to get upstream stable rather then just the OS version) OR you can allow rawhide for certain packages/groups if you want to stay bleeding edge

We've tried having standards in Linux before, and they were utterly ignored (Linux Standard Base). Basically, there is no reason for certain groups or developers (Red Hat (and to a lesser extent, Canonical) and developer-who-shall-not-be-named) to listen to everyone when they can do whatever they want and everyone else has to deal with it.

Most of the features were not native to Windows first.

I remember using dictation on MacOS long before it worked right in Windows (I know I used it with OS 9, I think it went back further though. I don't know if my OS 8 box still boots to check).

And Spotlight wasn't new with OS X either - it is a direct decedent of Sherlock.

Apple often doesn't do things first, but they tend to do them right.

FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies.
