In this case it is more than the distro, for Tom can choose NOT to use the LTS version of Ubuntu, which would allow him to have a much more up-to-date version of Evolution (an other software). The *buntus already have a more recent LTS from last year (14.04) and a non-LTS from this year (15.04). These relseases will offer Evos a bit behind the current stable version, but not THAT far. Version numbers at the moment exaggerate the situation a bit given that version numbers in Evo were changed to match Gnome.
I started with Linux Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04 base) about three years ago, came somewhat more up-to-date with Mageia 3 and 4 (Evo 3.10) and now Manjaro (3.16). At this point I could not imagine returning to a 5-year LTS, so were I a *buntu user I would update either biennially or semiannually.
As someone observed, the close tie of Evo to Gnome will no doubt complicate running it in older distro releases, but there are those of us who have never run Evo under Gnome Shell -- and have no intention of doing so.
(Apologies to Patrick who just received this as an off-list message as a result of my mistake.)
