The majority of people using server hardware never update the
hardware during the life of the equipment.
They do roll out new servers though, and want to support that new
hardware. They also run 3rd party applications and want to run the same
operating system across all their servers.
Yes, some enterprise customers want to eat their cake and have it.
No, we cannot leave the solving of that riddle to them. They are the
customer and we should get them a usable compromise.
