This list is a tiny tiny minority of FreeBSD users, and even here most =
of us are not using desktop FreeBSD.

12/stable is projected for EOL in 2024. Doesn=E2=80=99t seem too short.

Considering the amount of security that is need4ed to run a system, the =
life cycles are going to be necessarily shorter between needed updates. =
The days of sticking a box I a closet and ignoring it for 10 years are, =
