"Red Hat announced it has extended the production life cycle of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and 6 from seven to 10 years, as
reported by our sister publication eWEEK. With the extension, RHEL
5 support will be carried through 2017, and RHEL 6 users are
supported through 2020.
"The new plan was implemented due to high customer demand, said
Red Hat. As Joe Brockmeier explains on ReadWriteWeb, 'Many of the
customers adopting RHEL 5 were doing so mid-cycle, and were looking
at dealing with upgrades sooner than what's desirable.'"
