I wish I could say that I haven't had to (practically) rewrite applications due to breaking framework changes, or that I hadn't had major refactor efforts due to some JavaScript framework that decided to completely break backward compatibility on the next release. Did we have to upgrade to the next major release? YES, because the older version no longer received security updates, and our company policy required us to stay up to date. I've felt this pain enough times to know that more often than not, sticking to the basics is often better than chasing the next shiny framework.
