Bad example. Regular Support for 2.6 ended 7/2002.

Sure, but you can still get patches for it. In fact, Sun is still issuing
patches for 2.5.1, and as my memory serves, that came out in 95 or 96.

Jeeze, they only stopped supporting SunOS a couple of years ago (and I
still have the last full set of patches for 4.1.4). End of regular support
is not the same as end of life (which happened to solaris 2.4 a while
back). Red Hat is out of line (but then I only use Slackware, so what do I
care).
