"The end of life of an open-source project works
differently, of course. It does mean that the official development
group will no longer spend time and energy fixing bugs in these old
versions. But that's where the similarities between proprietary and
open-source software ends: If the open-source software fails to
work correctly, you (as the end user) always have the option to
patch it, bringing it up to date by examining the software updates
that came out for newer versions."
