No you can carry on using it as long as you like however there will be no more system and security updates and the repositories will be closed at some point.

okay lets say that isadora 9 has reached "end of life" how do i get the programs or the updates after the repositories are closed i thought you could always get all the updates the os ever had for that . i tried that with lts number 5....... but i could not get the updates that one ever had.... or is there a life line limit? or am i doing something wrong? i dont know how toget the updates and programs after the repositories are closed or is just like that.... i cannot get updates or programs for elyssa 5 lts......... its the one thats based on hardy heron ubuntu. so say i wanted to put elyssa 5 on my pc 2day how am i supposed to get the old updates for it or the programs?

As I said, the repositories will be closed, there will be no more updates and it will be classed as obsolete, but you can continue to use it as it is. If you are not happy with that then you need to upgrade.

8.04 Hardy Heron (see http://releases.ubuntu.com/ ) server edition only still has some life left in it until April 2013, I believe. But if you are looking for desktop related files, forget it. Elyssa was dropped from updates for desktop version in October 2009.
