On the official website of SUSE  I can read:
At SUSE, we believe we all bear a responsibility to preserve our planet for generations to come. We want to be part of the solution to the challenges facing our world.
So the capability to run an older system and thus to avoid having to throw it away and to harm the environment by that action should be supported actively by SUSE.
This can also be interpreted the other way round: if 10% energy can be saved by using more efficient programs (ususally, "better performance" translates to "less time in high power full-cpu-consumption mode"), this gain should not be wasted by tending to a small fraction of the installed base.
I'm not saying it is correct one or the other way, but I'm also strongly opposed to obsoleting perfectly good machines without showing that there is an actual reason other than "intel and amd wants these machines to finally go away so they can sell new ones".
