long term support its a FISMA thing...
Telecommunication and government contracts can not be won unless support is long term and on shore
(many are copying the USA FISMA approach).
I dont see Oracle winning as many of these as in the past unless they do something drastic
what would be really interesting would be the number of servers not upgraded and still vulnerable to EXTREMEPARR and EBBISLAND
the shadow brokers forced people to upgrade... which was nice...
