tablets are a different ecosystem, we should ignore it here.

The desktops systems usually have a way to downgrade - just uninstall
your current version and install the previous one.
A good example of this is uTorrent. Users are not happy with the last
releases (includes ads and bloated features), so they download and
install an older version.
Having different versions of an app it's not unique to Linux.

What about all the freeware software I see in Windows/OSX?

Those will only run on special versions. They provide binaries for e.g.
98se/XP or Vista etc.. There are no different startup processes, no
different desktop environments, etc. pp..

My iPad 2 more often crashes, then it's working and there's no official
way to downgrade to a working state, resp. to restore from a backup,
Linux does provide ways to downgrade and to restore from backups.
