Support seems to be one area where Microsoft i still ahead of Linux is support. They will end support for Windows NT soon, but how many years is that? 5 years? 6?

I don't think you can find any Linux distributor still supporting one of their 5 year old releases.

Yes, there are valid reasons for that, but it doens't change the fact that it's a problem for companies.

You are ofcourse correct that 5 year support is definetely needed by many companys. With Microsoft you pay for this support, as it is expensive to do, and so should you do with Linux.

That is what RedHat delivers with their Enterprise Linux (I recommend it to customes, who can't just make a dist-upgrade once a year).
