Linux "On the Linux kernel mailing list, Willy Tarreau has announced that there will be no more releases for version 2.4 of the Linux kernel. Tarreau, who is responsible for maintaining the Linux 2.4 kernel, said that 'few people' still use this version. According to him, these users are better served by a central Git repository that collects bug fixes and that he has now created such a repository for them." I remember when 2.4.0 was released... Proper USB support! Them were the days.

Things like cable box and other "black boxes", hardware made by a manufacturer (pace, sci. atlanta), supported by another (cable company) and installed in yet another (private house or business) are a different story. There is still tons of OS/2 and early Linux (2.2, 2.4). You know, the kind of (sometime large) niches that recently stockpiled 80386 processors to be sure they would have enough of them for the next 30 years.
