---- Drupal kinda merging with Symfony / a new Drupal Fork

What worries me is developing a serious website for a corporation in Drupal and then finding you have to update it to keep it safe but suddenly finding that it's not even the same code.
This is always on the cards and it doesn't matter which CMS you use.
If you use a custom theme you are likely to find that it's not updated for the new version due to imcompatibility. Even if using a default theme, any modifications that you make at all can pose probelms if the CMS is changed radically and the worse case scenario is not being update to the new version of CMS due to the server not using the latest version of PHP or SQL.
We have been developing modules for use with all of the popular CMS and I can tell that it is most annoying to have to provide a different module for each different version and a nuisance having to provide a new one every time they change something.
