Makes it a real PITA if you don't have broadband, though.  At least with
RH you can have a friend with broadband download the ISOs for you.

Funny Mandrake has the same 12 month policy (18 months for what they
consider "base" packages, though), Gentoo has NO support (from what I can

but not too many of them are still around...
