@joerg - how about the whole truth, not just cherrypicking to suit an agenda?

Mainstream support ends January 2015, which means no feature upgrades.

Extended support runs through to 2020, which means security updates will continue to be provided until that point.

I'm no fan of MS, but promoting FUD is no better when it's aimed at MS than when it comes from them.
