The main problem with fragmentation is that you can't run the apps you want because it isn't compatible with your phone. But if you have Gingerbread or higher (and about 60% or more of Android devices now in use run at least Gingerbread) you can run almost every Android app that exists.....
Another factor to keep in mind is, sometimes there is an advantage to running an out of date version of an OS....sometimes the older versions can do something the newer ones cannot...I have a friend who recently upgraded from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, and she regrets it because when she ran Gingerbread, the phone would make a 'clicking' sound when she locked the screen, for whatever reason, ICS doesn't do that...now this sound like a trivial feature, but for her it is important...
Fragmentation can be a benefit is an older version has something you want that a newer version doesn't have....
This is why some people still run Windows XP and haven't upgraded to Windows 7, even though their computers may be capable of running Windows 7
