Which tells me right off if I buy the latest, I can count on it being 
unsupported in 3 years.

That's a pretty good reason for me to go elsewhere.  At least with a 
desktop, I can use Ubuntu and upgrade with each new release.

I'm serious about this.  I have an N770 and was planning on using it as 
part of a carputer interface and there are other things I was going to 
be adding along the way, but over the past year, I've asked myself if I 
want to stick with this product because I see little effort for 
backporting.  Once the new toy comes out, the old ones are essentially 
abandon.  While that happens with things like Windows, one reason I 
stick with Linux on most things is because most Linux stuff doesn't 
play the, "Spend more money now to upgrade or be left behind" game.
