in 18 years Debian released 6 "stable", an avarage of 3 years between a
stable and the next one, i think is already longer than others call
"LTS" a distro. 3 years between stables is already (imho, maybe) too
much, is already an overload of work for maintainers to backport
patches and other on software often classified "old" if not "obsolete"

The major benefit of opensource software is the "darwin effect", good
software evolve quickly, bad software die, force a maintainer to work
on a software for 2 years more than usual may mean force a unusefull
work, *imho* 3 years are already too much for a lot of enviroments
(like development)
