I would decide from expected EOL of the release if not interested in
upgrading during the life of the box. Perhaps someone with better
insight can answer if there are anymore planned for 10.x or if 10.3
would be the last.

11 still have some edges but we are in production with half a dozen no
problems so far.

"Under the new support model, each major version's stable branch is
explicitly supported for 5 years, while each individual point release is
only supported for three months after the next point release."
