DId you consider LMDE? I don't know the fine print too well, but as a "rolling" release it has no EOL.

You can keep running it, but there won't be any more updates. See here for possible solution: [url]http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=152585#p794581[/url]

you can still run any O/S after it's EoL.

- it's the security of it, that is the main issue.

a 'nix O/S is still more secure even after it's EoL, - than another O/S from a major supplier.
