I have been using Linux Mint 15 Mate for the past six months. I like it and would like to continue using it until the Mint 17 Mate LTS release comes out in May 2014. However, this six-month gap between January and May seems like a long time to go without any updates. I realize that I can live without any Firefox browser updates, but what about the security issues? Any hidden dangers that I need to be aware of?
If this is a stupid question, then so be it. But I'd rather be accused of asking stupid questions than of blindly proceeding with my head in the clouds and ignoring any possible consequences that may occur.
