Nobody is talking of 20 years, for instance. One or two years at most. It is similar to what SLES does, for instance, but with lower spectations/effort.

(Jesus, you are making it tuff :-( . In an earlier message I posted a few minutes ago I said I am ending my involvement in this thread - but what you wrote cannot go unpunished! :-) )

*I* am talking about 20 years.

I see no difference in installing a version of oS and using it for 20 years because the statement was made that the people using Evergreen had no interest in the latest; they wanted stability.

Then if you want STABILITY install a version and stick with it for 20 years!

What for?

Who is going to keep doing the needed security updates for 20 years? That is impossible!

Why do you want someone to spend time and effort to keep your installation going for 2 or 3 years with maintenance updates so that you can call it an Evergreen?!

Well, many people want it, and some maintainers are actually doing that job, because enough people do want that maintenance done. And we are grateful that they do.

You don't, fine! Don't use it.
