then I could be the only one to experience it, making it hard to

Your CCRMA comments are really good news to me. I'd mistaken
inactivity with lack of maintenance. It's very nice to hear that
it's more lack of need for maintenance. The RT-PREEMPT kernel is
a nice thing for sure.
So, what components of a system are most relevant for
compatibility between developers and users? I'd suspect these
would be pretty important: kernel, glibc, ALSA, JACK. What else?
