As I see it, it's "having to change your system to change it again a
couple of months later".

Probably most of these people do not want to use Legacy in longer terms,
but want to have see an overlap between 2 releases, because they skip
releases and are afraid of seeing a gap between these releases.

Another difference is marketing. "FC3 by RH" sounds differently than
"FC3 by Legacy".
