In writing, I agree with you.  But  4.8 is the current "stable" release; 
it's going to be around for a long time.  And supported.

It's possible there'll be a stable 4.9, but it's unlikely, since most of 
the development work is now on 5.x.

In the past we ran BSDi-OS (a commercial version).  Lots of people moved 
from that to FreeBSD when BSDI (the company) was sold.  So there's a 
lot of support for the 4.x branches and it looks like there will be 
into the future.
