is now unsupported. We'll have to see can we get them upgraded.
WhiteBox and RHE both have five-year update plans. Which is nice. Debian
tries to go the middle road, so you have an OS that will servers and
desktops, where "stable" can be three years out of date for some packages,
and most desktop users end up using stable (with loads of backported
packages) or testing. Choose your poison.
