It just brings up a good point that for some reason needs repeating.  In
following the mailing lists when RH announced it's EOL changes (before
Fedora) there were a lot of posts saying "I'll just switch to foo" or
"I'll be forced to go to bar".  Most of these posters didn't bother
looking at the support policies of foo or bar.

The situation has been changed a bit with Fedora, since it is aimed at the
enthusiast market, does have a shorter errata time than most, but not by
much.  RHEL on the other hand has a very good errata policy in comparison
to it's competition.
