"Support: Now, don't just jump into downloading it and
installing on reading the long term part. This DOES NOT mean that
you’ll continue getting newer versions of favourite software
packages till that time. This only means that you'll continue
getting "security updates" for 3 (or 5) years. What’s the
difference, some might ask, as they think that the newest version
of a software is the most secure. However it is not so. A newer
version may bring more features, but also more code to become
vulnerable to bugs."
