Heh!  Yeah... Once you get used to apt, you'll wonder how you ever got
by without it.

I'm pretty sure this bit is not true.  Obsolete versions get security
updates for a while after the new release comes out...
I don't think there's a guaranteed time-frame for that (this being
Debian, it runs something like "until it becomes too much of a pain")...
But I believe the devels aim for "about a year".

He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.
