So, you don't have to necessarily upgrade every release. Every *other* release would be ok since say Fedora 17 would be maintained till Fedora 19 is released and you can afford to skip Fedora 18.
Ubuntu (not LTS) schedule doesn't allow for that and LTS is supported for 5 years while RHEL is supported for 7 to 10 years.
