What I said is to install the version and then keep it for 20 years, and
have it updated via normal channels before it hits it's EOL - *after* which
it cannot get any more stable than it is at that point. Then just using it
for the next 20 years - it's stable, you don't want any new upgrades and so
keep going with that version.

But you want to have someone spend their time in providing "you" with
updates for another few years after the version's EOL yet claiming that you
don't to have any updates because you want stability.

Perhaps you are allowing tooo much weight to "updates" as the majority of
support provided to Evergreen is "security" updates *only*. Evergreen is
a solid, dependable, "secure" system.

You do realize that security problems are found in older systems? They do
not become secure and remain that way. It is code written by human
beings, *always* subject to errors.
