Just take a look to Windows XP users. Almost 10 years of bugfixes and
patches almost without any mayor change in the OS. But XP is still on
the road. And it's because you can have the latest software "and"
hardware in your ten years old OS.

I'm not saying that Mageia should last ten years. But IMHO that "XP
case" is a valid example.
